Tomato in Router vs. Gateway mode

    When I configure Tomato on my 54GL in Router mode, it blocks communication through the device.

    I want to use my Tomato router only to get a PPPoE address, update DNSomatic and forward all traffic to another router. I have set up this other router on Tomato's DMZ. This other router has an IDS to watch for port scans etc and when this happens it only reports the source of the traffic as being from the Tomato. I thought that I could use router mode to get a PPPoE address then just forward all traffic and my IDS would list the packets as coming from the original source.

    Is this the way Router mode is supposed to work?

    Thanks again. Tomato is so slick!
