    When using the builtin option in tomato to backup your configuration, are all changes saved. More specifically i'm wondering wether, the static ip list for LAN clients, the QoS settings and classifications and init/shutdown/firewall/wan up scripts are saved in this backup.

    I'm running Tomato v1.07 on WRT54GL v1.1

    thx in advance

    I think it's all saved. I am certain the static ip list and scripts are saved from first hand experience.

    When you save a configuration, you're really just saving a "zipped" copy of all the non-volatile ram variables. Try telnet-ing or ssh-ing into your machine and running the command "nvram show". You'll see a list of all the nvram variables and their values.

    Essentially anything that survives a reboot is either in ROM or in the NVRAM variables. That certainly includes everything you've asked about.

    Ok thx guys.

    I did suspect that was the case, but I didn't want to get a nasty surprise if ever have to use my backup of the configuration.
