    I imported my old QoS settings that don't match those set in Victek's RAF 1.28 Tomato.
    Is there a config file I can edit to change them to whatever I like? It's a bit counter intuitive when DNS falls under WWW category and WWW falls under Games

    You can't easily change the names as they are hardcoded into the compile you are using. You could however try using a compile from the link below, where you will find the original class names.

    Thanks Toastman but nevermind. I don't have a clue how to compile and I need the OpenVPN client built in Victek's RAF.

    You have choices...

    If you need OpenVPN and extra Victek's features and don't care much about QoS labels, continue to use the current Vic's build.

    If you need OpenVPN and original QoS labels, and don't care about extra Victek's features you can use either my builds, or SgtPepperKSU's builds.

    If you need OpenVPN, extra Victek's features and original QoS labels, you're doomed :biggrin: (unless Toastman has such a build in his wide collection)...

    Aha, yes, I do :)

    Is there no way we (err... I mean you!) could change Tomato to allow user-entered QoS class names? e.g. with an interface to change the names similar to how you can add names to port-forwarding rules or Static IP clients?

    That would solve the problem more elegantly than having different builds just for having different names... of course I've no idea how easy or not it would be to implement.

    Yes - done - in early 2011 ....!

    Anyone know if a firmware like this has shown up? i.e. one where we can customize the QOS labels? I'm ok even if I have to set the labels with nvram set/nvram commit through telnet/ssh... For me, it'll be a once and done thing.

    I'd like the ability to label them with my own meaningful names, like MusicStream/Skype/VOIP/RDP/SSH, and put the labels in my own order.

    Has anything like this been made available? (I'm using Victek MIPSR1, 1.28-8525 ND)

    Thanks for your quick reply... And excuse my ignorance... but...
    Is this the best one for a 4MB Flash 200MHz MIPSR1 router (Buffalo)???


    Is this roughly feature equivalent (plus your upgrades) with the 8525 victek version?

    Also, do you know if sendmail is compiled in busybox too for this version (it's in victek 8525)?

    If so, awesome!!! Thanks for your help.

    P.S. Do you think it would be safe to upgrade to the above from victek 1.28.8525 without wiping the NVRAM so I don't have to spend 2 hours reconfiguring?

    1) Probably
    2) No, it isn't.
    3) As constantly repeated on the forum almost every day, you may get away with it but it's always safest to erase NVRAM. If you set "erase nvram after flash" you will see all the defaults appear, such as Toastman fast timeouts, QOS rules, etc. Or the defaults can be loaded again by erasing NVRAM at any time.

    To reconfigure you only need 5 minutes to transfer your important settings to any router. Try this:

    Thanks for your help. I downloaded 7621.1 from June 7th.
    Installed and reset NVRAM. Struggled to connect for about 30 mins before realizing that clearing NVRAM disables the DHCP server.

    Thanks for the nvram export --set tip. This is helpful. Still, the first time took a while to figure out what I need. Maybe I will reset NVRAM and afterwards do a nvram export --set and "diff" that with my current settings to see which ones are most important.

    Anyway, thanks again, I'm in business with custom named QOS categories. Slick..

    DHCP is disabled on startup, to prevent Routers, WDS machines, AP's etc. that have lost their configuration due to power brownouts or corrupted NVRAM from rebooting as with DHCP active, and then issuing wrong IP's to the rest of the network.

    Happy you've got it working again.

    Yes, understood. Only issue was I didn't know your FW was different this way. Once I figured it out, it took me 3 mins to fix. Everything is working great now, and I thank you. The FW is excellent and I have QOS charts properly labeled now.

    It's on the "About" page and in the readme :biggrin:

    For anyone reading this that may wonder WHY, and how to use this to advantage:

    In a large apartment block with maybe 30 AP's, for various reasons which we won't go into now all these little plastic boxes occasionally lose config and pop up on (by default) issuing IP's to all and sundry. Here's how to get around that - just place your real router(s) on any address except so they won't get jammed by the newly arisen corpse. Then you can access the damned thing without having to climb ladders and retrieve it. As long as it comes back online without issuing IP's you can quickly be back to normal - so that's why I turn off DHCP by default.

    There's a reason for my madness!
