My university gives each student a directory on their AFS which is accessible via SSH. There is a (light) CLI-driven piece of software that I would like to run continuously from the university.
I thought I could just run the software through screen via SSH, detach, then reattach from any other SSH session whenever it's CLI needed to be accessed. However, screen and tmux do not work since they depend on sockets for their functionality and sockets cannot be created on AFS space. ( see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=676663 )
My account is unprivileged but has access to a toolchain that can be used to compile and run things locally.
Is there a good solution to this?
