Running a program in the background - SSH


How can i run a program in the background if im connected to a comptuer through SSH? I know i can use the command say './hlds_run &' and it will start in the background, but when i disconnect my session the terminal closes and the program closes. I only have access to the homedir of my account. So all in a nutshell is there a command i can use to run the program in the background even after ive closed the terminal? Thanks for everyones replys

Thank you very much

So i started the command in /home/x7hus/hlds/ since the program 'hlds_run' is in there. I used the following to launch the program for the first time
Code:
nohup ./hlds_run -console -game cstrike -secure -port 27015 +ip 67.19.135.182 +maxplayers 16 +map de_dust2
Once i CTRL + C'ed the terminal the server died. So i ran it with the following '&' at the end, to put it in the background

Code:
nohup ./hlds_run -console -game cstrike -secure -port 27015 +ip 67.19.135.182 +maxplayers 16 +map de_dust2 &
Now it should stay open until the server its self dies or something?

Screen

Theres also a really cool program called Screen that allows you to run the program in a console that you can attach and detach.

So basicly you start up your screen with something along the lines of :
screen <flags> <screen name> <program>
( i cant remember my exact start up line, its burried in a startup script on another computer).

Then you can detach the screen using "Ctrl+a" then "d".

now you can exit your session, and any time you want to connect to check it out, you can ssh back in and do:
screen -r <screen name>

Head over to :
http://server.counter-strike.net/for...ghlight=screen

for a little more information.
