How can I export MobaXterm sessions to another computer? There is mention of a MobaXterm.ini file, but I cannot locate that file using the documentation.


I know it is an old thread, but you can do that with a right click on the "Saved Sessions" folder inside your "Sessions" tab. I think it is an easier and faster way to reach your goal.

Maybe these article on their official blog could be usefull too : http://blog.mobatek.net/post/mobaxterm-configuration-settings/

It depends on the version of MobaXterm you were using, but you can find the configuration file of MobaXterm that contains the session list ("MobaXterm.ini"). It is in the same folder than MobaXterm executable or in "MyDocuments\MobaXterm" folder

I have v8.6 on Windows 7 professional, and v10.2 on Windows 10 professional.  The MobaXterm.ini file is located at C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\MobaXterm on both machines, while the executable is at C:\Program Files (x86)\Mobatek\MobaXterm as default.

  • Thank you! I needed to find MobaXterm.ini to mass delete old sessions. We changed a naming convention, so half of my sessions no longer actually worked. – Brian Hannay Mar 1 '18 at 17:54
  • in past versions: C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\MobaXterm
  • in current version as of 2020: C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Documents\MobaXterm
  • what you should do: in mobaxterm >> settings >> configuration >> tab: "general" and choose your own proper location so you find it easier to access/edit in the future
