    Backgrounds proccess aren't running


    Greetings, i have some applications i want to run on backgrond proccess, when i run it i put the "&" at the final, then i press Ctrl+Z to put it on background, when i type "jobs" it shows all the jobs on background, all stopped, when i put fg %1, its shows the proccess, but when i type "jobs" still showing "stopped". I want it to run on bgrnd proccess since if i close the putty terminal it stops all proccess.

    What should i do to make it running on background? My distro is Debian Linux, thanks a lot and have a nice day

    The & should be all you need, this puts the job in the background from the start. Typing Ctrl+Z is what is stopping your jobs, after Ctrl+Z you need to type bg to resume the jobs in the background.
