The simple way, which may be be enough for you:  IIUC, most of the
messages you'll want also go to syslog, so just run 'tail
-f /var/log/syslog' in an ssh session.

The more complicated way (speculation - I haven't tried this): see the
Remote-Serials-Console-Howto to set up linux to use a serial port (or a
USB virtual serial port) as the console, and then connect to that using
reverse telnet:
