is it possible to split/divide CLI terminal into two parts so that i can do two different works without switching to other tty, and i can see those two windows simultaneously.

If you have 'screen' installed, then you should be able to do that using Ctrl+a S. Have a look here for more shortcut keys.

If you are just running a terminal windows within a gui, just open two windows. Or if you are in a full text environment, on some distros like redhat and fedora and I believe centos, by hitting Ctrl+alt+F1 (or F2 or F3.....) will take you to a different terminal.

So I take it you're not using the screen application, then?

just open a file and then use this command ":split <new file name>". This will open the second file.

So let me get this straight. You have one monitor, and you want to see both terminals simultaneously on the same screen? Almost like the left half being tty1 and the right half being tty2, right?

Use screen.

Also, you can use a customized .screenrc to make the server administration process much more comfortable.
