I am quite new to tmux and don't really know how to use it to it's best effect so what I am trying to do might not be the best way of doing it. Feel free to give alternative suggestions!
The setup: I am using tmux locally on my desktop. Frequently I am connecting to a development device running ubuntu (which also has tmux installed) to run some lengthy tests.
Currently, I am simply connecting to the device via SSH in one pane in my terminal. What I would like to do is somehow connect the pane directly to a tmux session on the device (sorry if my terminology is not correct) so that I can connect and disconnect at will from lengthy tests and use the tmux configuration from my desktop. It seems to be something that tmux should be able to do, but my google-fu has failed me. Any ideas?
