How to start UNRAR & disconnect without stopping process

I have a very large UNRAR task that needs to be executed against my OpenWRT drive, but I need for it to continue after I disconnect from the Putty session. Is there an easy way to accomplish? (Obviously not a Linux wizard.)

Install "coreutils-nohup", then execute:

nohup unrar file.rar > unrar.log 2>&1 &

You can now close the session, then come back later, and see the logs.
