I am starting a server via ssh from various locations, and i want the terminal printout to be able to be viewed locally on the server, is there any way to do this?
There are certainly a lot of ways to be able to view the output of a session that is being run from a different terminal session.
One simple way is to log the output using a command like
To read the saved output in another session, simply read the saved log file
Another more flexible way is to use a terminal multiplexer program such as screen , tmux , or byobu . A terminal multiplexer allows you to attach to and detach from running terminal sessions. This gives you the ability to do view the output of running programs from more than one attached session, and much more. See Ubuntu's help page on Byobu.
