Apologies for my ignorance but I'm not having much success here.

X is running on both machines, which are both next to one another. At the 
moment I have text on KDE's Konsole on machine B. I need to be able to see 
this text on machine A. I can ssh into machine B from machine A with no 
problem. I can then type "konsole", but this just opens an empty konsole. 
What I'm looking for is to display what's on machine B's Konsole on machine 

Sorry that I'm not terribly clued up.
