restartcommand wasn't found in the time I had, the
shutdown -r nowwas used to
restartthe OpenVPN services.
So, the router actually rebooted instead of stopping? Because 'shutdown -r now' is a hard stop, not a reboot. I understand that you were most likely just trying to fix things, but that line especially doesn't make sense.
Restart linux The shutdown command can be used to restart a system with the r option instead of the h option. Usage is same as before. Just replace the h option with r option. # shutdown -r +5 "Server will restart in 5 minutes. Please save your work."
Shutdown linux To shutdown a machine call the shutdown command like this # shutdown -h now The h option is for halt which means to stop. The second parameter is the time parameter. "now" means that shutdown the system right away.
Didn't need to shutdown (halt) the router, I'm not there to restart it. So rather than use -h, the -r was used.
As the service restart wasn't found in the time I had - the router was rebooted as a 'this is what I have now, and the service window is NOW'
I never said that the router rebooted itself. The router was rebooted as the only other option to getting the OpenVPN service to restart......
Ah, I use the shutdown command so infrequently that I'm forgetting what the option switches for it are. That's a lot of typing for
Ha - with the limited experience in CLI, I went with what I knew would work.. I used that command in Windows and Linux - so is second nature to type. I'll forgo using the GUI in Win10 and type that ,..... Is it 'right' - meh,.. maybe not. but it works.
