I can't seem to figure out a decent way to manage jobs over ssh. I want to start a job in an ssh session, logout, log back in, do a fg, check on the job, logout, then repeat the whole process. nohup doesn't seem to wrok well.
I used this command
$ nohup script & > nohup.out  28128 $ nohup: ignoring input and appending output to `nohup.out' + Exit 255 nohup script
If I do either
$ jobs $ ps -ef | grep script
I get nothing, i.e. the process isn't found.
Also, a related question I have is: If I'm in an ssh session, and want to send a job to the background, ctrl-z doesn't work. What to do?
Cany anyone help me out?
