How to write an upstart event.d script

this one to suit the setting of having in /etc/inittab at
the version of previous inittab in fc8

vp:345:respawn:/usr/sbin/vtund -n -f /etc/vtund-pcnamranhq.conf pcnamran-hqsatellite

but for fc9 .. it is now using upstart.. the same thing that had been used by ubuntu 8.04 / 8.10 ..

so need to create a new one at /etc/event.d/vpn2hqsatellite


# vpn2hqsatellite - vtund
# This service maintains a vtund client from the point the system is
# started until it is shut down again.
description     "vtund client daemon"
author          "Namran Hussin namran at namran dot net"
start on runlevel 3
start on runlevel 4
start on runlevel 5
stop on runlevel 0
stop on runlevel 1
stop on runlevel 6
exec /usr/sbin/vtund -n -f  /etc/vtund-pcnamranhq.conf pcnamran-hqsatellite

to test.. start it with..

initctl start vpn2hqsatellite

kinda weird.. as before we just use

kill -HUP 1

but nevermind as long as it working then fine..

initctl status vpn2hqsatellite

easy .. huh?

btw : ‘encrypt yes;’ on vtund-3.0.1 can’t connect to server vtund-1.0.8 with ‘encrypt yes;’ option.
as default for 1.0.8 encrypt is just blowfish. but for 3.0.1 is default method is ‘blowfish128ecb’.

and this wordpress plugin code can’t process a line with white-space as part of the code..
