Suggestion re: Backup Configuration

    I think it would be a good idea if when using Tomato (v1.04) to backup it's configuration (Admin => Configuration => Backup Configuration) it only backed up those NVRAM registers that Tomato directly allows access to via its web interface. Currently it appears that it backs up all NVRAM registers much like executing 'NVRAM show' at the command prompt.

    I was hoping to Backup my current configuration, reset all NVRAM settings to factory defaults, and then restore from the backup but doing so restores NVRAM registers that I was trying to clear such as NC_GatewayName, NC_Homepage, snmpd_sysname, etc.

    A check box giving the option would be the best way to enable this ability. I hate choosing only one or the other. This may also permit the ability to use the config file on routers other than the one that created the file.

    I agree entirely! :) One option could be "Backup Tomato Settings" and the other could be "Dump NVRAM To File"

    Thank you, Mr. Tek
