SSH login to persistent console
For a while I've been SSHing to our servers over an OpenVPN connection. This usually works great, apart from when I get disconnected for whatever reason. I've been meaning to figure this out for ages.
Is there a way to login to a persistent shell/console?
For example, I start a task running, eg compressing large amounts of data with the output being echoed to the screen, then get disconnected from my session.
Is it possible to log back in to that session to view the progress of that command?
Or when I'm disconnected does it logout and kill the session?
