Hello Friends


I am hoping that you may be able to help me install StrongVPN using OpenVPN on a Nighthawk R7000 with Advanced Tomato.


Internet connection is Vodafone Fibre.


Have found a few guides but have not been able to succeed.


BTW I am 72 yo so please be a bit gentle with me as, although I am still learning I don't have your knowledge base.


Have flashed the R7000 with Advanced Tomato Ok. So far have been able to disable the WAN on the R7000 and use a network cable from the Vodafone LAN port to R7000 LAN port to start to get somewhere but really need some help (sort of plain English so as I can understand).


Is there any more basic info you need from me?.


Thanks in advance.

It's been a long time since I've played with Tomato but I'm not 100% sure if you can bind the VPN service to a LAN interface - ie you may need to bind it to the WAN IP of the router and plug from the LAN port of your Vodafone router into the WAN port of the R7000 to get this to work.

Thank you for getting back to me. The difficulty is that there is only one WAN port on the Vodafone modem and the cable from that goes to the Corus fibre box.  I was able to Google to do as I say above but I got into so much difficulty with configuration that I was not understanding.
