Why haven’t I heard of screen before? So useful! Start up a screen session and you can detach/resume on another computer. Long running task you want to keep tabs on but need to move computers no longer an issue.
Start a Screen Session
Creates the Screen Session with given name. You can use this name when detaching/resuming from another computer.
screen -S NAME
Resume a Screen Session
If your computer shuts down, you need to access from another computer then resuming is what you are looking for.
screen -d -R NAME
Not sure what Sessions you have?
Use list to get the ID and name of running screens.
Not working? try forcing
screen -X -S ID quit
No more having to worry if my internet connection is going to cut out, computer crashing or going to sleep when working with remote connections.
