I forgot about screen, I used it quite a few years ago for running some stuff over night it's very usfull.
But that is not really what I would like to solve..
Say I would like to download a large file locally (one that takes longer than 30min). Because my ISP dropps the connection after 30 min My problem is that the download also breaks.
What I was hopeing for is a solution along the lines of a virtual connection to the server that if dropped, re-connects but sessions are maintained. So downloads and ssh sessions continue.
Does VPN maintain a session if the connection is dropped and re-connects?
I have identified what is creating one of my problem, it's my ISP's load balancer and thus my ip keeps changing at random intervals. Is there a way to configure my server to ignore the ip changes?
