viewing the display of another terminal
I had a general question and wasn’t sure were to start looking for information. I was wondering if someone might be able to point me in the right direction.
If I log in and run a program, the output will display on the pseudo-terminal that I have logged into. Now let's say I need to check up on the status of this program, so I ssh in from another location. Is there a way to view the display of the terminal that the program is running on?
I am pretty new to Linux, but I do know how to read. I have no problem reading the documentation or howto's, but I do not know where to begin. Does anyone know what processes control the output? How does the virtual terminal work? What kind of topics do I need to search for? Thanks to anyone taking the time to read this and respond.
