Re: read from /dev/pts

hello,

you can use script for achieving this.

like if you want to monitor a specific user put the string "script -a filename " so that all the user initiated commands will log into the file name u have specified.

If you are looking for auditing then,

a) setup history files
b) Use script -a in profile
c) Use tee to update all details.
