Thanks Steve. Your assumptions are correct. The only way I have found from the 
various suggestions on this thread is to use VNC, so as to get machines B's 
Konsole showing on machine A, then it's easy apart from the 100% CPU useage 
when running VNC.

The alternative, also quite straightforward is to use Konsoles "Save history 
as" option, then ssh into B from A, then retrieve the saved file using Gedit 
for example.

This thread has been a real bundle of fun.

Nigel.
