Good day all,


I’m starting and stopping OpenVPN 2.1 on Solaris 10 using legacy run scripts in /etc/rc2.d, as follows




cd <base path>

./openvpn server.conf




processOpenvpn=`pgrep –f “./openvpn server.conf”`; export processOpenvpn

kill –s SIGTERM $processOpenvpn



Apart from better checking in K30openvpn to ensure that the openvpn server process is dead, would you consider this an acceptable was of starting and stopping OpenVPN 2.1?
