    Hi

    Sometimes my provider gives me a IP that ends with a zero.
    A few minutes ago my IP was 85.177.220.0 :smile:

    This unusual ip causes some problems with some programs. My openvpn client at work couldnt connect to the Tomato-Openvpn server if my IP ends with a zero.

    Could i insert a script in tomato that disconnect and reconnect my pppoe connection if i get this unlikely IP again ?

    Thank you
    Splat`

    Also seen this IP address on UK cable connections, apparently is strictly valid if part of a network with smaller mask than /24 ie 255.255.254.0 (cable users generally have to change MAC address to shake it off!)

    The first address is reserved to define the network, the last the broadcast address. I've seen hardcoded "/24" in the Tomato or similar sourcecode but I think many systems don't like the ".0" IP address.
