    OpenVPN startup on FC15

    I have not figured out why this is happening - but:

    > service openvpn start
    doesn't work
    chkconfig | grep openvpn
    openvpn 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
    rebooting doesn't work
    > runlevel N 3

    but
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/openvpn start

    does work.

    Would like to understand why reboot and the service command fail.

    Re: OpenVPN startup on FC15

    There's another thread about this. A quick search should turn it up.

    Long answer short is:
    Drop a "systemctl restart openpvn@WhatEverConfig.service" into rc.local.
