comment Screen session wouldn't detach, now it won't attach
"-RR" will create a new session with the same name if it's unable to detach the other session. That's not what I want. I have several jobs that need to stay running as well as several files I was editing that I don't want to lose the edits.

Yes, either use, with or without the prepended session ID, the command just hangs there and does nothing.

I was trying to reattach but because "screen -ls" showed it as "attached" I first had to detach it.

comment Screen session wouldn't detach, now it won't attach
yes, like I said, I can. I was using the complete name that "screen -ls" returns (which prepends the session id) just in case it made a difference.

No, screen adds that to my session name automatically. And yes, I can reference it by using just the session name (as long as the session name is unique). I usually name my sessions after the host I'm logged into.

As I explained in the first response I already do that. And screen -x is the "spy" mode. It doesn't attach to the session like using "-r" does. And I've tried that too. Same results.

Yes, I've already tried that as I explained above.

That's how I start it too. But a process ID is prefixed to the name. For example, 6313.mysession

IIRC I need netcat to be installed and these are corporate boxes that are locked down. I can't install any software on them.
