    Regarding Advanced / Routing, can anyone explain on the "Static Routing Table" zone what is the "MAN" interface ? I understand WAN and LAN, but not MAN. Could it means "Manual" and use the next description field as device ?

    If not and I want to add a route that uses a "tun" interface, how can I do ? Is it possible to set it through nvram.

    In the Miscellanous zone:
    What the DHCP Routes really stands for ? What is done under the bonnet ?
    Reading http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Tomato_Firmware/Menu_Reference#Routing:
    Is it possible to have more detail on what happens changing this option. Does it only play with iptables rules ?

    If your question relates to VPN only don't bother setting up anything in advance/routing and play with the openvpn config only

    Supposed you're using openvpn add the route in the custom script config (for both client and server)

    syntax example.

    Once openvpn connects it adds automatically the route to the tunnel.

    You're right this was my aim and I finaly found somewhere that I had to resolve it this way.

    But, as I'm curious, I'm still interesting in the answer regarding MAN, and the actions of the Mode. I know, it's just in the source but if somebody know...

    In the futur, would you think it may be possible to associate a tun device to a VLAN ?

    During my studies (some time ago ....), I learnt that MAN means Metropolitan Area Network. Like something between local and wide network...
    But I don't know if, in this case, it's this exact meaning.

    best regards.
