Share screen session

  1. Start screen using the command:

    $ screen -S <SessionName>

    The -S switch gives the session a name, which makes multiple screen sessions easier to manage.

  2. Allow multiuser access in the screen session:

    :multiuser on

  3. Grant permission to the guest user to access the screen session:

    :acladd <guest_user>

  4. The guest user can now connect via:

    $ screen -x <host_user>/<SessionName>
