Launching an app through telnet?


Hi,

I would like to start a telnet session on one machine to another, via a telnet session, and be able to close the local telnet sesion, with the remote still operating.

How do you do that?

(the purpose is simply to maintain an open port)

Cheers.

look into nohup. this round the problem that your program will close when your telnet session does.

You could read up on GNU Screen, which would fulfil this criteria whilst still being absolutely awesome in many other areas.
