If I have a tech on site and I am back at the office I can ssh into the box he is having trouble with and fix it.
How can I allow him to see the same console I'm working on so he can see what I am doing?

Yes of course. I forgot about that one. I usually think of VNC as a GUI sharer link PCanywhere instead of sharing a console. Still I'm curious is there a way to share a console with built in tools? Perhaps a way to echo a session from one console to another?

Or use kibitz. It's an expect-based tool, designed just for the purpose you have stated. VNC is fine, but might be a bit heavy over a "thin" ssh modem session;-). Kibitz isn't geavy at all.

man kibitz

Screen should work OK to... I love *nix, there is always one more way...:-)

Just as a side note

I use #screen bash

this way I get a full console session.
