ssh in and view it's local ttyX


What commands would i need to learn of to ssh into a remote machine and view exactly what is displaying on one of it's lower 5 ttys'? Im running Folding@Home and would like to check it's screen output every now and then.

Will come in handy for other things too!

the principle your suggesting would be highly insecure, while handy, it would be a pretty nasty approach. What you should do is try the "screen" program which officially allows this, i.e. you start a console program in a connectable viewer program, not a direct console.
