View Full Version : [all variants] run program on ssh server, then shutdown local machine - problem

January 3rd, 2012, 01:56 PM
I want to do the following:
Log on to an ssh server where I run a program that takes a looong time to finish. In the meantime it might happen that I want to shut down my local computer. When I then login to ssh later I see that the program I started was terminated before it finished.
How can I have a program running on the remote server via ssh without being logged in all the time?

use screen, start script, then detach window and logout :)

mark thread as solved if you have a solution
