[Openvpn-devel] Daemon as non-root, high priority


  • Subject: [Openvpn-devel] Daemon as non-root, high priority
  • From: Ian Pilcher <i.pilcher@xxxxxxxxxxx>

I would like to put together a patch that will allow the openvpn daemon
to run with elevated priority as a non-root user.  This currently
doesn't work, because the daemon changes its UID before it renices
itself.

Questions:

  * Are there any "philosophical" objections to this that would prevent
    such a patch from being accepted?

  * Any gotchas?  From my brief look at openvpn.c, it seems pretty
    simple.

Thanks!
