updated /opt/agns/bin/NetVPN.sh

started services

/etc/init.d/agnclientd start
/etc/init.d/agnLogd start

If you intend to run this headless, you will need to have a look at the NetVPN.sh script below to update the account/user/pass information or set that via the environment and you should be ready to go.

/opt/agns/bin/NetVPN.sh

Now to connect run the CLI client or if you have X running the GUI should be working as well, enjoy!
