I've just started using lftp for remote transferring files on my Raspberry Pi running Debian. I know how to transfer the files, and use
jobs to add and view transferring files.
However, I'm not actually sure on how to view these transfers once lftp moves to the background. The lftp man page mentions how lftp is moving to the background, but when I open a new instance of the program from shell and type
jobs, the queue is empty. However, I can clearly see using my file manager that the transfers are still happening, as the files are there and growing in size.
I'm guessing that when I reopen lftp, it's just opening a new instance that isn't connected to the
nohup mode lftp that has the active queue. I've tried searching various places, but no one else seems to have this particular issue.
So, I guess what I'm asking is twofold:
Is there a way to easily attach to the background lftp process to view the current
If not, is there a way to view this at all?
