I’m trying to download a few pretty large dataset onto a Linux machine at school using SSH on my Mac from home. I’m using
wget to get the files as follows:
The problem is when I close my SSH client, the shell session on the Linux machie ends and killing my wget processes. I read online to use the
screen command to keep my processes alive. The command follows:
screen wget dataset.zip
After entering the above command, then press
Ctrl+A+D to detach the screen and go back to the original shell and the SSH session can be terminated.
