SSH - switch local terminals (to ttyv0)
Posted on 2006-11-11
I have a FreeBSD-Box (6.1, without X) which I'm accessing both locally and remotely through SSH.
Locally, I executed portmanager on the first console. My problem is that portmanager takes a really long time to finish and often interrupts because it needs user input. Locally, I just switch between the consoles using Alt+Fx and thus am able to check on console ttyv0 if some input is needed. But I don't see any way how I can do the same thing remotely through SSH. But then again, I'm quite new to SSH, maybe there's an easy way?
Thanks for any help in advance!
