Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I logged onto my home machine remotely (from work) via ssh and started some downloads up. My box is on dial up and after about 5 hours the ISP terminated the line and my box dialed back up again.
During that time I was logged on via ssh. The dial up cut out and my sessions are still running. The downloads have resumed from what I can see via netstat.
The first three pseudo terminal sessions (shown below) are from this morning I had "screen" running and had the edonkey command line client running on one of them.
The last pts/03 is me logged on this afternoon.
Is there a way for me to gain access to the old screen session remotely via ssh?
If not is there a way I can access it again when I get back home locally?
I don't want to kill the sessions as I will have to queue in line for the download again but I do want to monitor it's progress.
