Ihave just set up a gaming server but i have to do it remotely, i have the games all setup and installed and can run it fine but when i want to get out of the server and just leave the game running i cant as soon as i leave the Telnet the server shuts down. is there anyway of leaving the server up but exiting absolute Telnet?

This isn't really an AbsoluteTelnet issue, but I can answer it anyway...

Normal behavior for a UNIX system is to clean up any process you start when you log out of the system. This is a good idea in most cases (keeps things from getting cluttered) and applies to background processes as well.

To circumvent this behavior, you need to run the program in the background with the 'nohup' command like this :

nohup MyProgramAndArgsHere &

'nohup' is short for 'no hangups' which means that any program that is run with nohup will ignore the signals that get sent when you exit your session. When you exit, the process will be inherited by the init process.

Let me know if this helps!!!
