XDMCP Remote access session restore after disconnection


I am using Suse 9.1 and I have configured the server to accept XDMCP connection from remote machines.

I connect to this linux server from a PC using Cygwin/X to run some simulation that take days.

My main problem is that sometimes the connection between my PC and the linux server is lost temporary. When I reconnect, all the processes that I was running are lost.

Main question here is: "how do I configure my linux box to restore my remote XDMCP session after the connection is severed.

i dont know about XDMCP, but maybe try using a VNC client, it will keep your session alive and be exaclty how you left it when you return. (im not sure, but suse probably already comes with a vnc clients/server, maybe even this one.)
