Create it?  I liked it so much, I made my own.  

The synonymous command on Debian/Ubuntu is invoke-rc.d, and I created a
symlink "service" to that command.  otoh, you probably don't have a
workable iptables script either.  You may need:
            iptables -P OUTPUT ACCEPT
            iptables -P INPUT ACCEPT
            iptables -P FORWARD ACCEPT
            iptables -F
            iptables -X
