I have been reading about how to automatically start a screen when I ssh to a remote server. I would like a simple one-liner to add to my .bash_profile to start a screen when I ssh in, and NOT exit my remote connection when I detach the screen.
I have been looking into exec screen and pretty much every combination of -d -r -D and -R and cannot figure out what flags I need.
Ideally I would type ssh whatever and be logged into the server in a new screen or it can reattach an old screen, I would kind of like to know how to do both to see which I like better. Then I can either type ctrl a,d or ctrl d and have it bring me back to the normal ssh login for that server (where you would see the motd). From there I can screen -r back into whatever screen I want, or hit ctrl d again to log out.
