I may be wrong, but don't think that will work. I have already run apt-get 
update, and apt-get dist-upgrade, and the upgrade has completed. All I have 
left on the CLI is the output from what has been done. If I run those 
commands again I will have an output showing no further updates.

No I'm not familiar with screen.

Perhaps I didn't explain the problem too well. I need to be able to view what 
is currently displayed on the CLI (KDE's Konsole) on machine B. I am working 
on machine A, and need to view KDE's Konsole on machine B.
