Hello guys i was facing the same problem when I deployed my selenium war in linux server and after RnD find a solution for the same.

 

You have to simple follow these steps :

 

1.  Install VNC its a chrome extension or any remote desktop software.

2.  In which server you have deployed your application like i was using TomCat server ,So run the TomCat server after taking remote of your virtual server .

3.  Now run the servlet from any client machine , Its done, Now you can close the virtual server window test cases will be running in server.

 

Here when we take remote of server so we are providing a complete desktop to the server and when we now run the test cases server executes them same as in desktop even we have closed remote window.

 

I hope you got my point.
