connecting to an existing session


I use Putty to ssh into my Fedora box and do all my stuff. I had just started Yum and was watching the progress when I lost my connection. How can I reconnect back to that session?

If you run remote commandline sessions use screen. "screen <command>" to set up a session with running command in the fist window, CTRL+A,D to detach (so you can exit your ssh session) and screen -DR to reattach to your session. CTRL+D closes a window.

BTW, not that its a problem, but this is more like a Linux - General forum question, nothing FC specific.
