How can the software auto start up with my config?

Hi Support,

I have recently installed these tools and found it is great.
I understand that if I manually run my program with my config file I have to run like this vhusbdarm -c
But how to set it with my config file when the computer is booting??
I have tried to change the /etc/systemd/system/virtualhere.service like below
******************************
[Unit]
Description=VirtualHere USB Sharing
Requires=networking.service
After=networking.service
[Service]
ExecStartPre=/bin/sh -c 'logger VirtualHere settling...;sleep 1s;logger VirtualHere settled'
ExecStart=/usr/sbin/vhusbdarm -c /usr/sbin/config.ini
Type=idle
[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target
******************************
And then re-systemctl it, but it doesnt work. Can you suggest the way to do so?
My machine is Raspberry Pi4, thank you.

Hi, it looks ok actually. Reboot your pi then type this

systemctl status virtualhere

then paste the output here

Now type

ps -ef | grep vh

and send the output. It seems like the server is running ok

Anson
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ ps -ef |

It shows it running, why do you think it is not running? Is it not finding the server on the client?

Anson
I can check that it is

I can check that it is running.
But the server name is still the same, but I have already change it into "ServerName = Sync-Pro123".
Seems it did not load with the config file.

OK so that has nothing to do with what you been asking. In the client, right click on the Server and select Properties->rename
