    As the title suggest, had a VPN using putty from work set up and was working quite well, Now I am behind a VPN using Tomato and OpenVPN and have signed up to a VPN ISP, the tunnel will no longer work....any ideas and pointers?

    I know that in putty that I point it to the I.P issued from my ISP, just wondering now I have a different I.P address issued by the VPN ISP (Hide My Ass) what am I supposed to point putty too?

    If of course I stop the "tunnel" in Tomato then the "putty proxy/tunnel" will work.

    Can you think of a work around for this?

    I think your terminology is a little confused. With Putty, you are using an SSH tunnel, not a VPN.

    You should still be able to connect to your router's ISP IP remotely with Putty even if your router is using an OpenVPN tunnel to Hide My Ass, I would think. How do you have OpenVPN set up?

    Thanks for the reply, Yeah guess I have got it out of context, Right, so when I'm at worm and I open Putty and click on connect, I'm not greeted with the "log in" screen, I just get connection timed out. I have openVPN configured on an Asus n66u. under the VPN settings Open VPN Client which has HMA details in.
