Looking for console monitoring application


Hi!

I have a requirement to monitor a client and help them with an ncurses application running on a text terminal. The machines do not have X. The application is not written by me, nor do I have the source for that. Is there application that can help me view a remote terminal of another user and let me send key sequences to it ( something like vnc for text terminals ).

Thanks,
Sarin

Hello, you should have a look at the program SCREEN

Thanks. I guess screen does not have sharing. But from the wiki site I found tmux which allows sharing. Will try that.

Sorry, didn't have enough patience to check all the options in screen man page . Found the -x option. Thanks
