Question SSH session viewable on host machine's monitor?


I'm currently running an installation of SuSE 8.1, a few days ago, i allowed a mate of mine ssh access so he could look things over with me, and he did something i thought was pretty neat, to show me what he was changing, he did something that allowed me to view his ssh session on the main monitor....

I want to know how this is done, in case at a later date i can do it as well...

any help would be much appreciated..

Have patience, my friend. People here are not waiting to jump on threads as they come. Why don't you ask your friend who showed you that trick and report back here? That way all get to share the knowledge.

This can be done with a program called "screen".

On the SSH session, you can start an instance of screen by simply running the command "screen".

On the host machine, you can open the same instance of screen by running the command "screen -x".

Now, you should both be able to type in the same window. Hope this helps.

i thought screen just allowed you to exit, and resume a running application... i'll try it. and the reason i can't ask my friend is because he's on holiday in croatia atm, won't be back for a month

thanx for the info

No worries. Screen can do all sorts of useful things.
