my home internet is slow so I have trouble to download bigger files. But I have access to another PC in work via SSH with good internet. I would like to run wget command on that PC and disconnect leaving it working in bakground and getting files. How can I do that?
Thank You.


From the command line: nohup <command> &

That will leave <command> running in the background after you logout.
