phditto/phrelay an existing session

Post by Bill Caroselli » Fri Sep 05, 2003 4:28 pm

I have a host configured to support phditto/phrelay. When I phditto
from another host I can connect and run photon applications on the
remote host just fine (but slow).

However, what I want to to be able to interact with other applications
that ar already running on the other server. More like the jumpgate
feature of QNX4.

Can this be done?

If so, how do I change the phditto or phrelay command line?

I find this an extreamly useful tech support tool to be able to go into
someone else's screen and see what they see and push buttons for them.

Hi Bill,

Providing you know which photon device the applications are running on, you
can use the -n option and specify the path. For example the default would
be something like 'phditto -n/dev/photon IP_ADDRESS'.

Cool! This does work. I was trying:
phditto -n/net/other_host/dev/photon
which of course did not work.
