You might take a look at screen.
Description: A screen manager with VT100/ANSI terminal emulation.
screen is a terminal multiplexor that runs several separate "screens"
on a single physical character-based terminal. Each virtual terminal
emulates a DEC VT100 plus several ANSI X3.64 and ISO 2022 functions.
Arbitrary keyboard input translation is also available. Sessions can
be detached and resumed later on a different terminal.
