 +===== Using screen for Shared Console Access =====
  
 +Based on [[http://​www.linux.com/​article.pl?​sid=06/​08/​14/​1945249]]
 +
 +To share access with another person, the screen tool can be used.
 +
 +Log in to the machine where you want to share a console
 +
 +  user1$ screen -S SessionName
 +
 +SessionName can be any easy string.
 +
 +  Ctrl-a :multiuser on
 +
 +  Ctrl-a :acladd otherLoginAccount
 +
 +As the second user, access the screen session
 +
 +  user2$ screen -x username/​session
 +
 +At this point, both user1 and user2 have full control of the session, allowing either of them to steer the session.
 +
 +user2 can leave the session with ''​Ctrl-a d''​
 +user1 can close the session by typing exit at the shell prompt.
