comment Copy text from one terminal into another
for cd -P /proc/PID/cwd I get "-bash: cd: /proc/PID/pwd: No such file or directory" in the host system's terminal, should i be replacing PID with the PID of the running terminal on the system?

comment put history command onto command line without executing it
This answer is ok, just that searching with Ctrl+r through a long history is cumbersome, I know the line number in the file, so can that be used at all? And how do you keep moving backwards/forwards when in the Ctrl+r mode? Best,

comment vnc connection working with PuTTY but not with command line
I think its because the first computer you log into then connects you directly to markinch bypassing it from further communication to reduce unecessary communication overhead. (?) and by the time you put the vnc client on you are already connected directly to markinch. (?)
