create a script file yourself

so on your PC
   script /tmp/logfile

and on the other pc
   tail -f /tmp/logfile

It's a bit simple but it works.

The question is not clear. What do you mean with "share the session of the my 'screen' session with the other user" ?

are you talking about the screen command?

You can share your desktop with VNC. (If that was the question)

You can share a screen session but to be able to set it up there are some changes needed that could create a security risk.
