Description Răzvan Sandu 2014-11-06 08:36:26 UTC
Description of problem:

In order to allow tinc to be used on a larger scale on production systems, please provide initscripts and systemd initialization files in the RPM package,
allowing smooth integration in RHEL/CentOS/Fedora and automatic VPN start/stop at boot/shutdown.

An idea of systemd initialization file, for modern Fedora, is present here:


IMHO, on RedHat-based systems, various parameters that are manually configurable
and necessary at initialization time should go in a special /etc/sysconfig/tinc file.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Thanks a lot,

The systemd files for Fedora work fine, so this file should simply also be pulled into the EL7 branch.
