Hi, I'm running Tomato 1.25 on Linksys WRT54G router. I'm running into the following problem: when a server on my internal network ('EAGLE') is running a bit torrent client (TransmissionBT under Ubuntu 8.04.2), the VPN connection initiated from my notebook ('KOSHKA') is grinding to a complete halt (to be exact, the Windows Remote Desktop session that runs over a VPN connection). Again, the termination point of the VPN is NOT on the Router (I'm running unmodded Tomato, so no VPN client option there), but on my notebook which is on my internal network. The BitTorrent connections (from 'EAGLE' server) are assigned to the Lowest class (in fact, to simplify the setup and minimize CPU utilization on the router, ALL connections from the server running BT client are being casted into the Lowest class). ALL connections from my Notebook ('KOSHKA' server) are in the 'High' class. On top of it, I put, just in case, the rules for the 'VPN' connections themselves based on the 'virtual' MAC addressed acquired by the VPN client, again, into the 'High' class. Alas, none of the above helps. I do see that all connections from the 'server' are moved properly to the 'lowest' category, all connections from the 'notebook' - to the high. Nevertheless, all VPN connections initiated from the notebook are very slow (the Remote Desktop session actually times out). If I stop the bittorrent client, VPN connection works fast... I'm limiting number of maximum number of 'peers' on the BT client to 300, so I don't think the router is really being overwhelmed with connections... Any ideas how this problem can be rectified? Pls see the excerpts from router setup in the attachments.
