Remote Downloading of Files


Pls i am trying to download a file using an ssh connection to a remote server (because it has a good bandwidth speed than what i have on my laptop) to download ISO files.

What i do usually is to do an ssh connect to an ISP server i have access to, then from that shell launch a wget command in the form:

[me@remoteserver]# wget -c http://download_location/pub/ISO/file.iso

This has worked most times but of recent, we have been having power outage and this disconnects the download which means i will have to start all over again.

I will like you to assist me in finding a command i use to launch a downlod internally on the download which will then start downloading the file and can allow me to log out and just wait till when the downlod finishes.

Any help?

use nohup or screen. nohup is the simplest:

[me@remoteserver]# nohup wget -c http://download_location/pub/ISO/file.iso &

not a networking question, moved to Linux - Newbie.
