SUMMARY: Taking control of TIP process

Thanks to everyone who responded. Recieved many good suggestions but one
was exactly what I was looking for.

Here's how I did it.
run 'screen'.
run 'tip' to connect to remote machine.
do what you have to do.
use ctrl-a ctrl-d to detach from screen back to shell.
next person does a 'screen -r <>' to re-attach the screen
next person does what ever they need to do.
(a man on screen will explain all of this and more)

I already had screen installed on my workstation but if your looking for
screen you can find it at

thanks to...
