Default Can a download be started from the Linux Commandline?

I will be away from over the Xmas holiday period and would like to be able to start JD2 downloads from the commandline. I'll be logged into my Linux server via ssh. I would like to be able to do something like:
jd2 http:[slash][slash]valid_URL.whatever
and have JD2 immediately start the download in the background. Of course, if it didn't like the URL, to report back when it exits.

And yes, the GUI version of JD2 will be running while I am gone, so it can interact with that, i.e., putting the URL in the download area immediately, instead of putting it in the LinkGrabber area. I obviously won't be able to see the GUI, but I can check on the downloaded files by looking in the download area of the NAS box (the downloads are placed in my NAS).

Thanks for any hints/tips.
