Shell script to activate OpenVPN
i wrote a small Shell script to activate and deactivate OpenVpn through IO Device. In my script i have while Loop which looks every 2 Sec the Output of my IO device to activate or deactivate OpenVpn.
It works very good if i execute it manually, but i want to start it by Startup automatically. So i put my script in "/usr/local/etc/rc.d" which will be executed on Startup. But Problem is, it dont work properly correct compare to when i execute it manually. Usually after 3 times activate and deactivating OpenVpn it dosnt work anymore.
Anybody knows what the Problem can be?
why would you want/need to do such a thing? Openvpn server or client if enabled would autostart by default.
thanks for reply,
but that's what we need to do, we want to activate or deactivate our VPN Client anytime just by pressing a Switch.
but ist not my Problem, it works if i execute script manually, as i said it works strange when i put the script in /usr/local/etc/rc.d to execute on Startup.
