I log into the Linux computer running my node rnd run console.pl.   
Instead of directing the log to a tty, I have the following in /etc/ 

DX:23:respawn:/bin/su -c "/usr/bin/perl -w /spider/perl/cluster.pl"  
sysop > /tmp/cluster.log

This allows me to ssh in and view it from my Mac Mini in another part  
of the house.  If I want to check the log in real time, I use "tail - 
f /tmp/cluster.log" in a terminal window.
