IssueClearTrust: How to run SecureDetector Daemon as a background process in UNIX
In UNIX, the SecureDetector Daemon can be invoked by the command "./Daemon". However, the downside of this is that you must keep the window session that invoked the "./Daemon" command open. If you terminate the window session, the 'Daemon' process dies. If there is a requirement for the 'Daemon' to be running continuously, the terminal session window shouldn't be terminated. Keeping the terminal session open for a long time is not advisable, since sooner or later the user may have to restart the machine.
ResolutionTo correct this issue, start the 'Daemon' by opening a telnet session. NOTE: Do not use 'Xterm', since it kills the process when the 'Xterm' window is terminated. The telnet session can be enabled from the command prompt by:

         telnet <unix host>

From the 'telnet' session, invoke the Daemon by:

         ./Daemon &         (the ampersand indicates the task should be run in the background)

Exit from the 'telnet' session.
