I hope that someone can help me. My idea is to use the Raspberry Pi as an uploader for Amazon S3.
I have to perform a large upload to Amazon S3 and would like to let the Pi perform it.
Basically I'd put the file that should be uploaded on an USB-Stick and insert it into the RPi. I set up the Pi for SSH access at my tv and then I connect it to my router without any TV or monitor connected to it.
Now I'd like to connect to it using SSH and start s3cmd which is a tool that is designed for uploading files to Amazon S3 on the command line.
But if I close the SSH session on my notebook now, s3cmd would be closed, wouldn't it?
That's not really useful as the reason why I would like the RPi to perform the upload is that I wouldn't have to run my computer 24/7 (with s3cmd/the ssh session opened)... So is there any way to avoid the process being exited when closing the SSH session?
Thanks for your help!
