I thought the syntax to forward both stdout and stderr was Code: application-name &> logfile.txt Is this wrong? I think my version will work with bash, but perhaps I'm mistaken....

    Then you can open ssh like this:

    Code:
    ssh user@server 'tail -f /var/log/logfile.txt'
    If the program is going to run in X in graphical mode or something then you will need vpn or something like that, I guess. It all depends on what exactly do you need.
    WOW thats the sucker!! You guys are awesome!

    Also that SSH tip is a big key to me finishing this project!

    Big thank you to you both Smolly and i92guboj.
