Connect to Xterm terminal remotely


Hi,

I have a machine that has an xterm open and I would like to connect to that xterm terminal and view the operations remotely something similar to VNC but without the graphical needs.

Is there a built-in utility to do that in Redhat?

You could access the terminal remotely with SSH.

You could run an OpenSSH server on the desktop that you would like to remotely log in to then use a client such as the OpenSSH client or, for Windows machines, Putty.

If you need to see the output being printed on that specific window, you could always have the output written to a file as it is running. However, there is most likely a far more elegant solution.

Sorry, maybe my explaination wasn't clear. What I really want is that I want to view the interactions going-on on the xterm. Just like when you VNC to it in AlwaysShared turned on.
