I would recommend screen. When you start it it forks and goes into the
background. When you start it it gains control over you terminal and
keeps it. When you log out it keeps on running and also keeps your shell
session. So when you log in again you can reattach your old session
to your terminal.
Its also in the ports /usr/ports/misc/screen.
