Terminals - spying on local terminals with ssh


Ok, here is the deal

I tend to leave programs running on terminals F2 thru F6

Now, I am fine with switching between them all using CTRL+ALT+Fn where 6<= n <= 1
to use the appropriate terminal.

Is there a way that i can see what they are doing via ssh.

IE, if I leave a distributed computing programm running on terminal F2 and i want to check on that remotely using shh only

as in no gui, all I have is the abiity to log in via ssh.


thanx for your help

You could use screen to be able to disconnect and reconnect to a running program. I sometimes start stuff (downloads, computations, etc) in a screen session at school or at work and then log off. When I come home I ssh to school (or work) and reconnect to the screen session and the program(s) is (are) still running.

To get started, read the LinuxJournal article on screen.
