No. The equivalent would be just simply SSH'ing into the box.
Ah, but see the screen command if you're looking for a way to keep a bash/ssh session running indefinetly. Here's what I do after I reboot my box:
When I'm done with a session I usually just close my ssh session, however I could force it to suspend and let me back out (say for whatever reason I can't just kill ssh) with CTRL+A z, and then screen will suspend the session and I can type exit twice to get out of the ssh session.
The next time I connect, I just use the following to get back to my same screen session:
See CTRL+A ? and man screen for more info (you can run multiple bash sessions under the same screen and switch around, split the screen into multiple spots, cut and paste between them, have huge buffers, etc).
