Simple all you need to a .conf file in /etc/openvpn and the daemon will startup when booting. However when running a bridged vpn one is required to start the bridge first: http://openvpn.net/index.php/documentation/miscellaneous/ethernet-bridging.html
The OpenVPN bridge can now be started and stopped using this sequence::
* run bridge-start
* run openvpn
* stop openvpn
* run bridge-stop
The question is how can I have the bridge-start script run before the daemon starts openvpn when then server boots ?
Is it advisable or safe to edit the script /etc/init.d/openvpn ?
