    rc.local is obsolete, use systemd instead

    I seem to recall that one can run a script as a side effect of the ‘shutdown’ command.

    What if I don’t have an rc.d folder, I just have rc0.d through rc6.d folders.

    Hi, thanks for that tutorial. I tried method #2 with an iptables script, which should execute after a reboot. Unfortunately it doesnt work, do you know why? Is it possible that the iptables service is not yet started when the script tries to execute the rules?
