How can I disown it a running process and associate it to a new screen shell?

I started a java client using nohup to get it to run in the background (needed to log out of ssh). Now how can I enter it? (need to get it to save its progress)

I ran ps -x and its pid is 5220

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

If you just want to check the progress of your program, just check a file called nohup.out, by:

tail -f nohup.out

All stdout of your program will be written to this file.

Also, have a look at this blog.
