I have tomato running on an Asus Rt-N16. I have used OpenVPN to generate all the keys, etc. I have it up and running now. However, I am confused by something… While I am on the road using free wi-fi, I connect to my router with OpenVPN. When I do it all goes well and I can browse my home network, print to my home printers, etc. But… if I go to whatismyip.com and view my ip, the ip shown is the ip I am being given by the free wi-fi service. It is NOT the IP my router has from my ISP at home. Does this mean my traffic is not secure and going through my VPN? Or am I OK and lacking in understanding?
Thanks for the help!
