    my provider needs to receive vendor class identifier connected to me and I receive my gateway ,ip, etc. ...

    how can I send the vendor class identifier with tomato?

    thanks for help

    It looks like this can be done by passing an extra argument to busybox's udhcpc, but I can't find where Tomato actually *calls* udhcpc or whether it's possible to stuff a value into an environment variable (NVRAM or otherwise) that it will pick up.

    There's no way now - Tomato doesn't pass vendor class to udhcpc (rhester72 - it's in router/rc/dhcp.c - start_dhcpc() function). Probably a useful option to add to futire builds.

    I'd advocate allowing passing of an arbitrary string (via NVRAM?) to udhcpc rather than implementing individual parameters like vendor class, which would allow for quite a bit of flexibility and future-proofing with very little code change. =) Just my $0.02.

    I hope to fix soon, because I prefer tomato than dd-wrt
