Using nohup command

Being stuck in India, it's a pain to copy even a few hundred MB file from FNAL to local machines. Also I am getting frequently kicked out from cmslpc machnies after a few hours of login. Turns out I can run commands on cmslpc using "nohup" option. If I get disconnected during the running of the command, it will still run to completion on the remote machine.
cmslpc16> nohup test_cfg.py &
cmslpc16> exit
