On a *nix I pipe gstat,gbak, gsec out to a file
/home/firebird/scripts/ >>/home/firebird/logs/bom.backup.`date +\%Y\%m\%d\%H\%M` log 2>&1

nb. this is from a crontab and the date values are escaped.

The resultant log file I monitor occassionally with "tail -f ", which just updates the console with each line appended to the file

No idea of equivalent of windows, but with powershell the must be a way.
Just not an expert with powershell.

In the meantime I found out the following 2 things:

1. If I call gsec with a local security database everything works as expected. The problem only occurs when it's a remote database. In both cases I used local gsec program.

2. If I don't redirect stdout to a file but say "gsec -display | more" I have the same problem: nothing is shown on the console (while it works with more and the local security database).

I hope this helps to solve this problem!
