I need to remotely assist a SCO Unix customer; what can I do?

Update: today, with RDP, VNC, and more, there's probably no need for this at all.

You can use the 'SPY' filesystem included in TLS604: here a short description:

spyfs:      A filesystem that allows authorised users
to watch people typing on console, serial ports, or
pseudo ttys, as well as any program output.  Also shows
multiscreen(M) contents.  Can also inject characters as
if they typed it.

By using it you can 'watch' what the remote user is doing and also interact with it; a very useful package.
