I need to transfer a large number of files over SFTP (only between Solaris servers) which takes a very long time. I cannot keep my PC on for this duration. I tried:
nohup sftp server1
While the shell is open, I see files are downloaded. When I close the shell it stops. In
ps -ef I don't see the
sftp process. The file nohup.out states: Killed by signal 15
If instead I do ctrl-z,
disown it works. However this requires the bash shell; how can I do this in ksh?
