Just a quick SSH related question...


Ok, nomatter what i google for this i just cant think of a syntactically proper way of describing what i mean that google understands.

What i was to do is be able to ssh into my system, issue a command or activity, and logout with the command continuing in my absence, a la a parted operation or a text indexing command or nmap or a wget download.

I know that some commands have a deamon mode, but thats not really what im looking for, I'm looking for something universal

I was thinking fg bg combinations but i dont know if this just backgrounds the process on that console or on the system completly

Anyway, i hope someone has a quick answer as it would be a great help.

Nothing actually to do with ssh at all... Just check out screen or nohup.

not a great name to find via google, that's for sure...they might as well have called it "computer" or "help"
