    Use a terminal multiplexer in general.
    Also, on flaky internet connections, Eternal Terminal or mosh IN ADDITION to a terminal multiplexer.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Unfortunately, I cannot install anything on the customer servers, beside some basic tools like tmux. Then it's only installed for the current session, so most of the time I use nohup (which is always available) to start critical processes. Pain in the ass.
