    I'm very happy running Tomato but there's one anomoly that I'm curious about. I've only noticed it since running Tomato: never noticed it with other firmware.

    My router serves about nine devices. Some use static IP, some use static DHCP, and others use dynamic DHCP for their addresses. One of the machines served by the router is my server which handles the webserver, mail servers, etc. for the entire network. When any of the workstations hit the server for mail (pop, imap) or to access the webserver (Apache), etc. the associated logs always show the workstation coming in as the router's IP address: never their own IP address. When viewed from the Tomato web interface all of the workstations are properly identified by both their host names and their ip addresses. Is this something that I have configured incorrectly?

    whats the OS of your workstation's and the server ? Maybe there is something incompatible/defect in your network! Try to flash back to the last firmware/config and retest this !

    Is the server using the router's IP for DNS?

    Yes it is. I'll try replacing it's IP with my ISP's DNS IP's and see what happens.

    The server is running Mac OS X 10.4.8; the workstations are mostly Windows machines.

    Thanks guys!
