If I exit an SSH session, would it terminate transfers from one server to another?
I SSH into a few servers now and then, oftentimes to copy large files or a large amount of files from one server to another. Typically I use either scp, ftp, or rsync.
My question is, what happens if I get a transfer going (scp, ftp, rsync) and then quit out of the SSH session? Would the operation/transfer still proceed, or does it end as soon as I would close Putty or whatever SSH client?
The reason I'm asking is because oftentimes, these transfers can take some time, but it only takes me a few seconds to give the command. It would be handy if I didn't have to worry about keeping the SSH connection going, but I'm just not sure how that works.
