Question How to Re-connect to floating telnet sessions

We use SCO OSR5 with TermLIte to create telnet sessions.
If you accidently click X on the TermLite screen and exit the session you leave process running. I've heard of a program that will allow you to re-connect to these 'floating' sessions and then be able to carry on your session.
Does anyone know what the program name is and the site to get it from.

Thanks

There is a program called "screen" that will do something similar. You can suspend any session and then resume it at any time from anywhere on the network. You can get it at http://www.gnu.org/software/screen/
