Recently I started working with Linux and the first day itself I felt a need to let the remote session continue while I wanted to disconnect my laptop and leave for home. Searching around for such a session management tool tool I found ‘Screen’ which is quite powerful and helped achieve my objectives.

As defined by Adam Lazur at http://www.linuxjournal.com/article/6340:

Screen is a terminal multiplexer that allows you to manage many processes through one physical terminal. Each process gets its own virtual window, and you can bounce between virtual windows interacting with each process. The processes managed by screen continue to run when their window is not active.

Most of the details on how to use Screen can be found in below links:

On UNIX the graphical display is managed in the same fashion as many other common services with client-server components. Your system starts an X server in the background at the boot process when you reach runlevel 5, it is supposed to be the default on most distributions. When you run a GUI application you actually display that through your local X server, that’s the default behavior unless you tell your system where you want to display your GUI application.

It’s very important especially in a server environment. Nowadays we rarely sit in front of the server or desktop we are about to manage, we do these remotely, remote control utilities have come a long way. Goatripsindia.com
