I'd like to know the best way to keep a process going after you've logged
out. Specifically, I'm trying to start 'ncftpget' processes while logged
into an RH box via ssh, then logout and let the download happen while I'm
At the moment I'm just C-z'ing the ncftpget process, then hitting C-d to
logout. If I do this, the session won't close by itself (ie I am not
returned to the shell on the local machine) so I have to hard-kill the
terminal window. Also, when I re-login to the RH box I find that when the
download finishes the process becomes defunct (presumably because the
terminal it was attached to is gone).
Is there a cleaner way I could be doing this?
