I have just installed tomato usb on my Asus N66 router. So far, working like a dream, much faster than my previous 7-year old old netgear router.
My configration is as follows. My ISP gave me an ADSL Fritzbox modem which also has router functionality. This is connected to my Asus/Tomato router, and is configured to forward all ports to the Asus. The Asus/Tomato is connected to my various NASs, PCs, media devices, etc on my home network.
I'd like to configure some advanced features, and I don't quite know where to start:
- I have just bought a DNS domain from namecheap since it is supported by Tomato. I've found the Tomato configuration page to specify the DDNS details, but is this the correct place to specify this? Or should this be configured on the Fritzbox, since this is directly connected to the Internet, and gets assigned its IP address by my ISP?
- I have two NAS boxes attached to my LAN, a Synology and a Lacie, and would like to assign them two hostnames on my domain, eg synology.mydomain.com and lacie.mydomain.com. Is it possible to configure Tomato so that I can connect to the web page of these two devices? I would like to be able to do this from work, where only ports 80 and 443 have been opened, so I suppose some kind of tunneling or port forwarding will be needed.
- Is it possible to set up Tomato so that I can remotely access the contents of the two NASs, either from Windows Explorer, or from a Linux/Cygwin command shell?
I have more questions, but this is probably enough to keep me busy ;<)
