On my office computer (running Scientific Linux 6.3) I have several windows running some processes in separate terminal emulators (
/dev/pts/). I often connect to my office computer with iSSH from my iPad, but I can only see the results of the programs that have been written to a file and can't see what each terminal is showing or control the terminals.
I want to be able to temporarily switch control of a terminal to my iPad iSSH terminal, look at the results, run new commands (on my office terminal from my iPad) then let the program run on my office computer and return back to my iSSH terminal, so I can check other terminals or simply quit. Since I use 3G most of the time to connect with my iPad I don't want to use any graphically depenent method which will be very slow.
As far as I have understood, something like
reptyr seems to permanently move control of a process from one terminal to another, I haven't seen any one talk (or ask) about giving control back to the original terminal. I want to return it back to it's original terminal after I finish.
I would really appreciate any suggestions or help. Thanks in advance
