I have installed honeyd on my machine and configured the appropriate settings to get it to run as a service. The service will run fine and functions as expected if I start it with command:
sudo service honeyd start
However, the service does not automatically start when I reboot the machine.
I have run the command
sudo update-rc honeyd defaults
And I receive the output "System start/stop links for /etc/init.d/honeyd already exist."
I have attempted to find any useful log information on the failure to start with
more /var/log/* | grep honeyd
The results of this search show the output of the service starting and stopping when I do so manually, but no events are listed during bootup of the machine, leading me to believe it is not even attempting to start.
I can post the contents of the various honeyd configuration files if needed, though I believe they are correctly setup since I can start the service manually.
Any guidance is most appreciated.
