I'm connecting to a VPS using SSH client on Android (JuiceSSH). I run a program, and then send it to background using Ctrl+Z. Then, why when I connect to this VPS using Bitvise SSH on my PC (the Android connection is still open), when I type "fg", there are no jobs?

How can I interact with the same instance of a program, but in another SSH client?


Jobs exist on their parent shell only. Use screen or tmux.
