start Openvpn in rc.local

Hi all, I need to start openvpn client in background when starting phone.

At the moment the faster solution I found is to add in rc.local :

        #!/bin/sh
        openvpn /etc/openvpn/client.conf &

and to set rc.local executable.
It works fine after a reboot but there is a issue, If the phone has no available internet connection (or If I don't want it to connect) it appears the "connection popup" (I don't know it's name) asking me to select a network connection. This is very annoying.
I'd like to keep openvpn running in background. It by default check with a certain interval to connect so when connection goes on it can connect by itself and it can disconnect when connection goes down.
Is there a way to avoid the asking of connection for specific applications?
If no, is there an alternative to start openvpn in background?

Thanks

Luca
