tmate is a great tool to remotely let access to someone else in a terminal. This is particularly useful for third party support.

To allow access on a terminal on the raspberrypi follow these steps below.

First install tmate

sudo apt-get install tmate

Then generate keys. Press return when prompted.

ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096

Run tmate


At the bottom of the terminal an address will appear. Give this address to anyone you are allowing the access to the terminal.
