    Hi Everyone,

    2 tools that I really miss from openwrt and dd-wrt is
    iftop and tcpdump. Anyone managed to find a version
    that will work with tomato? I tried using the latest
    from white russian but it keeps seg-faulting...

    Any other ways to maybe see the bandwidth usage for each client
    in one of those fancy graphs?

    Thanks in advance

    After a lot of surfing I lost track on where I found
    the statically linked tcpdump binary :)
    (but if you send me your mail address I can send it to you)

    After playing around I also managed to install a few packages
    (tcpdump & iftop) using ipkg on my /cifs1 partition using
    the following instruction:
