comment Using 2 ethernet adapters on a local network, ping reply not showing
Using multiple network interfaces simultaneously in Linux isn't as straightforward as that. It requires setting up a separated routing table for each of the interface askubuntu.com/a/151966/20381 While you are at that, have a look also at multi-path kernel project

comment How does ufw filter traffic?
Try check the output sudo iptables -nvL to know for sure because in the end that's where your ufw rules end up being inserted into/removed from when you open/close ports in ufw

comment How does ufw filter traffic?
I think that denies only incoming connections from sources that try to initiate the connection with you (eg when you host a service) rather than incoming connections which are related to outgoing connections that you made (eg web browsing traffic)

We are no wizard. You need to at least show your openvpn config here if you expect people to help

comment How to enable or disable services?
Note that service can handle both sysv init scripts (/etc/init.d/<script>) and upstart jobs (/etc/init/*.conf). If there were an upstart job with the same name as a script in /etc/init.d, upstart will take precedence. But with service however, you are not able to control your user session upstart jobs say if you have jobs placed in $HOME/.config/upstart. Because of that it's good idea to just stick with initctl, an intended upstart control tool, for managing your upstart jobs
