I am connecting to a linux machine exclusively over SSH. Recently I noticed that no matter what process is running in terminal, every time I close and reconnect through SSH the process may or may not still be running but I still get a fresh terminal instance over SSH and can't access the old one.
So this isn't the actual problem, because what I want is to be able to open another tab (or an equivalent) in the terminal my SSH connection already opened. So I can start e.g. a daemon there and switch to that tab to check on its status while I do different things in the main tab. Is there a possibility like this?
Note however: I connect from an SSH client on my Android phone. So I can't just open another tab there by typing
xterm & or something similar that easily.
