    This is a great video. I wanted to know if there is a follow-up of some kind. For instance, everything worked fine but (1) how do I get the server to now run “continuously after I log out of PuTTy and how can I run it showing just the ip address without adding the port beside it (so I can then work on showing the domain with the added port). Btw, this is the first node deployment to D.O video I saw that actually worked!!! (the other videos I saw on the web used a mac complicating things for me as a window user)
