    This is more an OpenVPN matter than a Tomato one, but I figured with a lot of people here using OpenVPN on Tomato they might find it useful. For a long time the only VPN connections you could make from an Apple iPhone were PPTP & IPSEC. While there's been a couple of attempts to have PPTP servers running on Tomato, OpenVPN remains the best and most supported and is in the builds from SgtPepper, Teddybear, now Victek, and others. Unfortunately there hasn't been a working OpenVPN client for the iPhone yet, due to Apple's restrictions.

    If you have a jailbroken iPhone.... you can now get an OpenVPN tunnel working using GuizmOVPN which is based on the free Tunemu.

    I wouldn't say it's a polished product but it's not bad and so far has worked pretty well to connect to my commercial OpenVPN provider. I haven't had time to try it with Tomato OpenVPN yet, but I can't see any reason why it wouldn't work. There is one important limitation however - it currently only works with TUN, not TAP tunnels.

    There's also a mini-review of this software with some screenshots here
