It is often a waste of time for the person on the other end of the chat to understand a guy without really seeing what goes on the terminal session. How using GNU screen can two people watch what is happening?

Log in and start screen on the command line. Then, enter ^A:multiuser on. That is, type Ctrl-a to enter the command mode, then type : to enter the screen's build-in command line. You can now activate the multiuser mode by entering "multiuser on" in the screen's command line that appears in reverse color at the bottom of the console window. To execute, hit Return.

The other guy just has to log in with the same user, type "screen -x" to connect to your screen session running in multiuser mode and follow what you do.
