Can DD-WRT VPN specific device traffic?

    Here is my setup:
    • Linksys WRT54GS with Tomato 1.25 connected to my cable modem in the basement and running as my firewall/DHCP server -- wireless is turned off.
    • Linksys WRT310N running DD-WRT v24 sp2 mini running as a repeater bridge with wireless enabled.
    I want my Apple TV2 and Xbox to access Netflix over my "Hide My Ass" VPN connection.
    I have followed some instructions on configuring DD-WRT to connect to the VPN, btut these configurations seem to conflict with the repeater bridge configurations.
    So is there a way to config DD-WRT to connect to the VPN while still functioning as a repeater bridge?
    Also is there a way to specify devices (by MAC address for example) whose traffic should go over the VPN while letting all other device traffic go over the regular connection?
    If this is even possible, is it best to do this with DD-WRT or Tomato (there is a Tomato VPN mod?

    VPN features in both DD-WRT and Tomato are pretty similar. Both have a custom configure box where you can put in your openvpn settings manually.

    I don't know if you can pick & choose traffic to go over the VPN... possibly with ebtables?

    Without being more specific on that I don't think anyone can help you.

    I have an Apple TV and Xbox whose traffic I'd like to run over a VPN, but I don't want any of my computer traffic to do so. So rather than add a router jus for the VPN i'm wondering if its possible to tell DD-WRT or Tomato that only these MAC addresses, or IP addresses, or physical ethernet ports should be VPNed.
