I'm hoping someone can help me out with this. I am trying to find out
how to SSH to a remote machine, launch irssi (IRC Client), start a
connection with a server and then place the prog. in the background
and then log off. I would like to then periodically ssh back and check
the status of this application.
I know that ctrl-z will place a job in the background and that I can
switch between background jobs with the fg command. This however seems
to suspend a job thus halting the download from dcc or ftp (if I've
used one of these applications and then placed it in the background.)
I believe that the job will also quit when I log out of the remote SSH
I discovered that "nohup <appname> &" will place a prog. in the
background automatically and theoretically should not be affected by
logging out of the terminal which I used to issue the command although
this seems to not work in practice.
Would anyone know how I can ssh to my box, lauch a prog. that can be
placed in the background and remain running even if I quit the
Many thanks in advance.
