remote echo

remote echo

(communications)
(Obsolete: "full-duplex") A mode of operation of communicating programs or devices in which the sending system does not display the characters the user enters, but only sends them to the remote system which then "echoes" them back to be displayed to the user. This lets the operator see not only typing errors, but also transmission errors. This is now the usual mode of most systems with remote users.

Contrast: local echo.

remote echo

The transmission of received data back to the sending station for visual verification. A local echo displays the typed keystrokes from the local machine, but a remote echo displays the data after it has been sent, received and retransmitted back.
