Well, If I didn't misunderstand your scenario, what if you use, for instace >>
in order to redirect output of machine B and then copy it to machine A? By
scp or whatever.
That's to say, using your example above: 'apt-get update && apt-get
dist-upgrade >> foo.txt'
Maybe you could use 'screen -RD', which will allow you to see what happened on
machine B even if you're not in front of the computer of machine A, or just
machine A is not turned on.
I supposed you to know how screen works, don't you?
Hope that helps.
