man watch

It won't do *exactly* what you may need, but it is very close.
This allows one tty to "snoop" on another, and if you feed it
the right switches it will also allow the "snooping" tty to
enter characters in the input stream. You may have to reconfig
your kernel with the "snoop" (snp) device.
