Default /etc/rc.* files isn't read properly?

Hi all.

I am new to OpenBSD, and I seem to have some start up problems.

I am running 4.1 (yes i know).

Ive just installed OpenVPN and configured it.

I works fine and I can connect to it.

I start it in this way:
cd /etc/openvpn/

openvpn server.conf

Surely I want it to start at boot time so I added:

if [ -x /usr/local/sbin/openvpn ]; then
/usr/local/sbin/openvpn --config /etc/openvpn/server.conf
fi

(This works fine if I type it in a shell (OpenVPN starts)).

to /etc/rc.local and to be sure also to /etc/rc.conf.local

But when I reboots the system, OpenVPN doesn't start.

Pf is activated so the rc scripts is being read by the system, but not my part.

dmesg doesn't tell me anything that can lead me towards any solution, please tell me if you want to see it.

ps aux isn't showing me anything about OpenVPN either.

Can anyone might tell me what I am doing wrong?

Thanks!

/etc/rc.conf and /etc/rc.conf.local are for environment variables only. Not for shell scripting.

If you want a shell script run at boot, put the sequence in /etc/rc.local.

See the man page for rc(8)

I know the fact that /etc/rc.conf.local is for enviroment variables only, I just did it as an experiment.

Here it is:

# cat /etc/rc.local
# $OpenBSD: rc.local,v 1.39 2006/07/28 20:19:46 sturm Exp $

# Site-specific startup actions, daemons, and other things which
# can be done AFTER your system goes into securemode. For actions
# which should be done BEFORE your system has gone into securemode
# please see /etc/rc.securelevel.

echo -n 'starting local daemons:'

# Add your local startup actions here.


if [ -x /usr/local/sbin/openvpn ]; then
/usr/local/sbin/openvpn --config /etc/openvpn/server.conf
fi
