What is wrong with this code?
using (var client = new SshClient("host", "user", "password"))

                   // var result = client.RunCommand(<ValidCommand>);  // command executing and doing fine
                    var result2 = client.RunCommand("nohup <ValidCommand> &"); // nothing happend - error and result are empty. On linux server nohup.out doesn't appear

I'm having the same problem in my application. I become only error 126. Can you please help us?

126 means "Permission Denied".
» ssh test "nohup /dev/null"; echo $?
nohup: failed to run command ‘/dev/null’: Permission denied

But when I'm using PuTTY, or running the same command without nohup it's all fine. And maybe I've made a mistake, it's not error code 126, but exit status 126.

Check the content of STDOUT and STDERR.

According to the nohup man page:
126 nohup found the utility program but could not invoke it.
RunCommand() is not the same like starting the command in a full (Putty-)Shell.
You have to compare it to the command option of your ssh client (e.g. plink):
C:\Windows\System32>"c:\Program Files (x86)\PuTTY\plink.exe" test "nohup /dev/null"
nohup: failed to run command ÔÇÿ/dev/nullÔÇÖ: Permission denied
This does the same like RunCommand() in SSH.NET.
