I'm able to SSH to into other machines using MobaXterm, but when I try to run the Local terminal, the Tab just opens and closes all by its own. Am I missing something like a config file ? I tried running it as an Admin as well, but no luck.
I am on Windows 7 Enterprise Edition 64bit and started with MobaXterm v9.0. I tried totally uninstalling MobaXterm v9.0 (including deleting the CygUtils plugin) and then installing the latest MobaXterm v9.1 and CygUtils plugin. However, the same problem persists.
In addition to having CygUtils.plugin in the same directory as MobaXterm.exe (or MobaXterm_Personal_10.5.exe in my case), you may need to set your MobaXterm home directory (and possibly root directory) to Windows folders to which you have modify access. You can do this in MobaXterm by going to Settings->Configuration->General and setting the "Persistent home directory" and "Persistent root (/) directory" to the folders of your choice. Worked for me. I was inspired to try this by stumbling on Where does MobaXterm keep its home directory?
I encountered the same issue. The problem was due to a dll conflict between cygwin and mobaxterm (which is delivered with an integrated cygwin). I removed the path of original cygwin from the %PATH% environment variable, rebooted the PC, and everything works fine now.
