    Keep an application running as service after closing ssh session.


    Hello friends,
    I am a rookie @ unix.
    I am sure most of you have probably heard of the program called DC++.
    It's pretty much like irc but less advanced.
    So anyway I use a program called microdc2 which is a dc++ text client which can be used via ssh.
    My problem is that when i close the ssh window the program also shuts down with it.
    I want to run it as a service like others services such as httpd, proftpd, named etc..
    What should I do?

    take a look at screen.
    it let's you leave a session running in the background, and reconnect to it later when you log back in.
