I am transferring a large amount of files from one computer to another using
rsync. I am doing this by SSHing into the source computer and executing a command like this:
sudo rsync ssh --rsync-path="sudo rsync" source_dir firstname.lastname@example.org:dest_dir.
Even if I add
nohup before this command, whenever I close out the terminal window from which I SSHed, the connection closes.
How can I have it so that my file transfer still continues when I close my SSH connection?
