say one runs a command like so:

tar tvzpf _some_big_tar_file_will_take_hours_to_list.tgz &

then later I exit... leaving it running (note the '&')

How do I later return and grab the output still coming from that command; where does the output of a command left running in the background go to?

Can I re-direct the output of a given command so a specific ttyv on the machine itself from a remote command; ie redirect stdout for a given command to ttyv2 ?

(tar was just an example, should apply to _any_ command which gives output to STDOUT).
