[SOLVED] How to auto-start an application during booting

I would like to enable the firewall (ufw) and also TOR on my system's startup (Chimaera). I found that i need to update rc.local and add the following:

    if [ -x /lib/ufw/ufw-init ]; then
    /lib/ufw/ufw-init start
    fi

Is that correct? Can someone help me how to configure these two process correctly? Also, openvpn auto-connect would be great. Now I am using cd /etc/openvpn sudo openvpn ....ovpn command in terminal.

Thanks!

Re: [SOLVED] How to auto-start an application during booting

I have done this.
Type in a console terminal... as root

 rc-update

you should get a list of services and their start-up status. like sysinit, default, off, recovery. (sorry it looks messy)

root@GlennsPref:/root  rc-update
           alsa-utils |                                              sysinit
              anacron |      default

Also you can use this to see the status of the services.

If your service is not listed to start you can add or del it from the list and run it, like this (for example)

rc-update add nftables default
rc-service nftables start

for the oposite, change add to del, and change start to stop.

I hope I got the question right, all the best. Glenn

Re: [SOLVED] How to auto-start an application during booting

I just run the following commands as root...

ufw default deny
ufw enable

After that second command, it shows a message saying that ufw is enabled and added to system startup.

...and you can check if it's  running with...

ufw status
