    Hi everyone. I have a WRT160n v3 with Tomato on it, and have enjoyed how reliable/stable it has been.

    I'm interested in having a VPN with it, though, and have been searching for a Tomato firmware with VPN for my router. The main limitation is that it only has 4mb flash, so all the VPN firmwares I've tried are too big.

    In the link below, it's mentioned there was a special firmware made with VPN that would fit this router, but I can't find the file anywhere.

    Does anyone have that file, or know of a Tomato firmware with VPN that'll fit a 4mb flash?

    The closest I've come is tomato-K26-1.28.RT-MIPSR2-088-MiniIPv6-VPN.trx , but my computer says it's 4mb and the router says it's too big.

    Thanks for your help.

    Nope no VPN for WRT160n due size limation. And the special version shibby was referring to was MiniIPv6.

    From POST you linked:

    "Mega-VPN is too big for routers with 8MB flash. Look into builds.png file and you will see this note.
    On WNR3500L you can use max Mega build.
    @M_ars. IPv6 + VPN is too much for 4MB routers and you want also pptp and multissid ;) Impossible :/
    I made special build with IPv6 and VPN for 4MB`s routers as @antony said but i will never do this again. I have to remove ALL i can from this build include even themes. If you cant pptp and more, you have to sell this router and buy new will 8MB flash or more."​

    Indeed. VLAN with VPN would be ideal. Still grateful to Shibby, currently using Tomato Firmware 1.28.0000 MIPSR2-138 K26 MiniIPv6 on my WRT160n v3.

    Funny thing, my much older Buffalo WHR-HP-G54 can handle Tomato Firmware v1.28.7636 Toastman-IPT-ND ND VLAN-VPN.
