Exscript is a scripting language for automating network connections over protocols such as Telnet or SSH. It is in some ways comparable to Expect, but has some unique features that make it a lot easier to use and understand for non-developers. It supports parallelization, logging, authentication mechanisms, and a lot more.
Terminal Mixer allows sharing the stdin/out/err of a process through a Unix socket, TCP, or raw ethernet (the latter only on Linux). It allows sharing a pseudo-terminal as well, for terminal-aware applications. The users can be allowed only to watch, or even to contribute. You can run your favourite 'vim' or 'bash' and access it remotely, even with multiple users using them.
