Using screen to connect multiple users to a shell session



I NEVER knew you could use screen for this…. Let multiple users connect to the same Console (command shell/bash shell) session simultaneously. I’ve looked at screen before. It’s a great *nix utility that’s available for most linux distributions. The primary use I’ve seen for it is to be able to have a shell open, and use screen to be able to disconnect and reconnect to a session. Let’s say you have software compiling, you can use screen to get it started from one location and then re-connect to your screen session from another machine. Think…. VNC for the command line. Well, much like VNC it’s possible for multiple users to view and use the session.


The above article is a good writeup explaining how to do this.
