Hey Guys - 


I'm a recently subscriber to AirVPN and wanted to first say thanks for your work - it works well for me so far.


When I first used AirVPN / Eddie Client, it was in Windows where i was easily able to configure it to do exactly what I wanted which was:

- Start @ Windows boot

- Enable Network Lock

- Connect to recommended server automatically at launch


My plans for its implementation changed shortly after this where I'm still wanting the same 3 things to occur, but am now using Ubuntu 17.04 (x64) instead.  Even though I've successfully installed Eddie in Ubuntu and it still offers many of the same features, it seems that I can't do all of the above.  


Overall, my question is is it possible to perform the above actions using either the gui or terminal commands at startup within Ubuntu?  If so, how?  I already tried installation of openVPN and downloaded a config file, but it obviously didn't have network lock features plus didn't offer a few other things I wish to have with the product.  I tried setting the desired preferences within Eddie, then creating a bash script to launch it at boot, but don't have it working yet - probably because it requires elevated permissions to launch - even though I added my account to the sudoers group.  


Any suggestions?
