XShell is a software program designed to emulate the presence of a virtual terminal. It is intended to allow a computer to act as a terminal; often useful when data contained within a mainframe needs to be accessed. As this is an open-source package, users will not be required to pay any fee prior to a download.
Main Specifications and Features
XShell is a modular emulator, as it provides a number of drop-down tabs. Users can then click on these tabs to create an entirely separate window. This is often beneficial when performing multiple tasks. This system is very secure and it employs the MIT Kerberos authentication system. Therefore, users will not have to be concerned about any data becoming compromised. A unique live update feature will automatically download any upgrades as they become available. A redirect key can likewise provide access to multiple remote terminals if required.
An automatic terminal lock prevents unauthorized access and this feature can be activated from the main menu. As more scripting language is now offered, the levels of automation associated with XShell are superior when compared to generic terminal emulators. UTF8 coding provides support in various languages; ideal for foreign users or when accessing an international terminal.
