[Durham] adding a route to boot

Thanks for your help.
When I run ls -l /etc/rc*.d/*openvpn*/ it returns
ls: cannot access /etc/rc*.d/*openvpn*/: No such file or directory
However I have checked the config in/etc/default/openvpn and AUTOSTART=ALL
was commented out so Ive set it to true. Thank you for that :) Will restart
the server and see if openvpn autostarts :)

That looks like a command that would go in /etc/network/interfaces.
Run 'man interfaces' for the syntax used in that file; post-up is described
in the 'iface options' section.

You shouldn't need to play around with update-rc.d for openvpn; the debian
package already comes with symlinks in /etc/rc?.d/ installed.
Check that they're still there by running 'ls -l /etc/rc*.d/*openvpn*/'.
Have you edited /etc/default/openvpn? It looks like you need to set the
AUTOSTART variable to say what VPNs you want to start up.
