    I am new to Tomato and I have flashed my router with Tomato Mod v1.11.1219 - Binary which I believe is an openVPN Mod.

    My Untangle OpenVPN server has provided me with the certificates and conf file.

    The contents of the .conf file which is automatically generated by Untangle are:

    # OpenVPN(v2.0) configuration script

    proto udp
    resolv-retry 20
    keepalive 10 120
    ns-cert-type server
    cipher AES-128-CBC
    verb 2
    verb 1
    dev tun0
    cert untangle-vpn/myrouter1.crt
    key untangle-vpn/myrouter1.key
    ca untangle-vpn/server1-ca.crt
    remote 1194
    (The real hostname has been changed for security reasons)

    Can anyone please assist me with how to get my router configured correctly as an OpenVPN client?

    Thanks in advance

    For a start try reading the well established OpenVPN thread.

    Why are you presuming I didn't, I have read the thread over again and even tried different things.

    However, I can admit I am new to the Tomato firmware and I not a very competent Linux user (yes I am trying to become a converted Windows user) like some of you so I came here for help.

    The bit that is confusing is that Untangle Server is using tun0 in their config and the OpenVPN thread uses tap0 so I am not 100% sure what needs to be changed in the config for init and wanup.

    try to run the vpn from the shell via telnet/ssh and post the log in order to understand what part is going wrong.
    also I advise you to post your queries regarding the OpenVPN Mod in the relevant thread... :grin:
    because a lot of people are subscribed to it including myself and when you post a message there it gets noticed and usually you'll get an answer in a shorter amount of time.

    and that encryption method you're using is not supported if I remember correctly...
