Use one keyboard, two monitors with one monitor reflectin activity on a ssh connectio


I'm trying to have one monitor connected to a raspberry pi, reflect the activity taking place on a ssh connection. If I had multiple users, it would be nice to switch between them and see their activity on the raspberry pi monitor. The one keyboard is not a problem, just the monitor. Basically I would be monitoring the activity on the raspberry pi, on it's own monitor. When using ssh, the screen just remains the same so I can't see any reflection of the activity taking place on the raspbery pi. I hope this makes sense.

Not sure I get the question.

My guess is you'd use some remote desktop in a window to display what is being typed via ssh. There may be some tricks to getting that to work but I think it could.

Yes, I've thought of that but haven't tried it yet. I have one monitor on the main Linux box. I have a monitor connected to the Raspberry pi. When I log into the RP via ssh, the RP screen remains the same, that is, it does not reflect that someone has logged into the computer nor can you follow along with them. I can use windows and putty or Linux and ssh but they do not accomplish what I want. Eventually I hope to have 5 RP, each with their own monitor. I need to monitor the RP in order to tweek their activity in a modified form of a computer stack. Had any experience with the "tail" command? What I don't want it to have a keyboard hooked up to each RP.


Thanks for your ideas.
