- NEW: Merged with parts of Asus GPL 380_4180, left out
most of it because of too many bugs in it.
- NEW: Upgraded to OpenVPN 2.4.0, and implemented support
for many of its new features:
* GCM ciphers
* LZ4 compression
* tls-crypt (uses the Static Key field)
* Cipher negotiation (NCP), with (optional)
fallback to legacy "cipher" parameter when
an OpenVPN 2.3 client connects to the
router's 2.4 server.
Please refer to the OpenVPN 2.4 documentation for
more info on these new features.
You will be warned if any server setting would
generate an exportable ovpn file that would be
incompatible with older clients.
Existing client config shouldn't need to be changed,
unless you modify the router's server configuration.

update your script to the new syntax. You need to
load the xt_set.ko module at the start of your script.
There has been no change to MIPS models, due to their
older kernel. (original code by Shibby and Victek,
Asuswrt port by john9527) (ARM only)

reveal it when you click on the field to edit it.
- FIXED: OpenVPN client shouldn't display policy routing settings
when using a TAP interface.
- FIXED: DSL/ATM overhead setting was visible on MIPS models, which
don't support it.

DDNS configuration page), which could be problematic.
- FIXED: IPTraffic database was no longer properly named after
the router's MAC address on the AC88/AC3100/AC5300.
If you recently enabled it, you will need to either
re-create a new database, or rename the existing
database from tomato_cstats_000000000000.gz to
tomato_cstats_XXXXXXXXXXXX.gz, where "XXXXXXXXXXXX" is
your MAC as found with "nvram get et2macaddr", in
lowercase (AC88/AC3100/AC5300 only).
Regular traffic monitoring (stored in
tomato_rstats_XXXXXXXXXXXX.gz) is fine.
- FIXED: Connected OpenVPN clients reporting as disconnected
on the status page following any wireless config change

while it already was ready, following any
