need help with the whole window concept

You can use “screen” in a console to start an app,then you can “detach” from the running program goto another computer then log back in then “reattach” if thats what you mean.

I can for example use “ssh” to log into my server,use screen to start a bittorent download using btdownloadcurses on the command line then detach from screen and leave the torrent downloading.I can then log in from time to time and check its progress.

If you need to do it using the the GUI then i beleive you can tunnel X through ssh but i have no idea how to do it.



I was cleaning out my mailbox and came accross this, it’s somebody asking for a graphical equivalent to screen.

Hope that is what you were looking for :slight_smile:

I can’t believe i forgot about VNC.And i’ve use it so many times as well!
Usually just to keep an eye on what the kids are doing on their computers.

Only problem with VNC is that it polls the whole desktop and agentae only wants the occasional app.

You would think in this day & age it wouldn’t be hard to do.
