someone earlier mentioned tty-snoop which sounds like a good method but it is not supported by SCO. If I were in Solaris or Linux it would work great but not for SCO. I also found this program called VNC. But also it is not supported by SCO. Thanks anyways...

> export DISPLAY=your_ip_address:0.0

oh sorry. I feel like an a$$ now. I thought that was actually a script somewhere. I can export the display as you put it and that works fine, but what I want to do it to be able when I get a call (or email) to login directly to his machine and get his desktop as my own. That way I can run the programs on his local machine but from my station. You understand what I mean?
