Issue/Introduction

Description:

Is it possible to run VM:Operator disconnected at a virtual console? We want to have VM:Operator run in two different places, say for example Ohio and Florida and the screen fills up with messages in Florida. When the Ohio staff clears their screen, would the screen clear in Florida too?

Solution:

The answer is no. Held messages are associated to a particular virtual console address.
Clearing the screen in Florida won't clear the screen in Ohio.
