I'm a user on a Linux machine. When I want to use the
machine, I have to log on and when I'm done I logout.
This is probably a question I could have asked on the Unix
panel also, BTW.
Now, here's my problem: I'd like to have a program running
in the background of the machine AFTER I have logged out.
More precisely, this program would listen on a socket and reply
to some queries.
How does that work?
I guess that there should be a method to do that but I have
not found any information about it.
Do I need to have root access to get that working?
Thanks for help.
