Sorry Tilghman, but I'm not following what you mean by a remote console.

I'm sshed into the box that asterisk is running on and issuing 
"asterisk -r". Unless I don't understand what your saying I can't
conceive of any possible way that could result in a different version of
the console than the version of Asterisk that is running?
