There are multiple ways I can help you:

1. You can try "shared session" by using "screen". (read info pages)
On first console tty use "screen", On second console use "screen -x"
to attach yourself to shared session (requires login of single user
on both tty's.)

2. redirect it "> /dev/ttyX" or use "wall" command.

3. Finally, you can scroll text-terminal up in Linux by using "ctrl+page up".

NOTE: works only if you are in non-X-terminal, but real TTY, *and*
only if you haven't changed to other tty.

Does that helped you ?
