Is the “Help improve VyprVPN by sending non-personally identifiable app data” setting supposed to stay selected once enabled or is it a one shot deal where at the time it’s selected it sends the data?
@jinjorge That check box will stay checked if you choose to enable it and the applet will periodically send that data. If you uncheck it, it will stay unchecked. Also, whenever the applet updates, it will be unchecked by default.

@nick thanks for the response. It doesn’t stay check on my Netgear R7000 running Shibby v124 AIO. Observed this with Router app v0.5.0.
edit: checked again on v0.6.0 and the setting remains enabled as you navigate to other router settings and back. this is not an issue with v0.6.0. apologies for the confusion

One thing i have noticed. The DDNS Check seems to use the VPN IP address instead of my ISP provided one. This breaks all my inbound ports on the DDNS hostname as its trying to come in via the VPN NAT.
If i go direct to the ISP IP the inbound ports still function correctly. But it makes my DDNS useless.
Thanks very much for passing along that information. I’m particularly interested in the DDNS issue since customers sometimes use our products in ways that we don’t always anticipate Did you configure the DDNS through the tomato->DDNS page? We have not tested the router app with DDNS. I know that our router app and the tomato settings do occasionally “step on eachother’s feet” - I have noticed this particularly when customers use both the router app and also configure the VPN via the tomato VPN tunneling page.
You bring up an excellent point - we should communicate better to our customers what tomato options are supported and which are not supported when using the router app. Just FYI, we used vanilla firmware for our testing, with nothing special configured via tomato (such as DDNS). I will see if we can post something to this effect alongside the router download instructions.
Thanks again for your input; we always very much appreciate hearing how our customers are using our software!
Hello, thanks for developing this app!
Is there possibility to choose between VyprDNS and 3rd party DNS (in the way it is done in Windows application)?
I have DD-WRT on my router… Just wanted to check this out before switching to Tomato.
Yes, you are able to change between VyprDNS and 3rd Party DNS when using the VyprVPN Router app. By default, the VyprVPN Router app uses VyprDNS. To change the DNS to a 3rd Party DNS, simply go to the Basic -> Networking menu and there set the DNS IP addresses to any 3rd Party DNS. To change the DNS back to using VyprDNS, you would simply input 0.0.0.0 for both DNS server IP addresses. Click the Save button at the bottom after making the change in order for the change to take effect.

Thanks for the reply!
Just tried to install the app but failed… I’m in China, and www.goldenfrog.com is blocked here, wget can’t download files… Any workaround?
Thanks for passing along that information! We’re working on a workaround for you. I will update you with that soon!
I also live in China and had the same problem.
I managed to work around the problem by downloading the necessary (1) files (2) directly, uploading them to an accessible online storage site (I used drivehq.com), and then editing install.sh to direct to the new url.
It took a little more time, but it worked. Perhaps it would be easier to host the files on a site that is not goldenfrog.com for those of us under the red thumb?
Thanks for posting a workaround! We’re looking into doing something very similar to what you suggested, so that other customers won’t have to do what you did manually. Thanks very much for the feedback - it should help other customers until we have a chance to address it, which I would definitely like to do this week!
i think there’s an easier method if you can connect via open vpn.
just set up a OpenVpn connection using this guide https://www.goldenfrog.com/support/vyprvpn/vpn-setup/tomato/openvpn
check your ip or logs to see if you have a established connection
then follow the steps from the 1st post on this thread
Actually, after the recent GFW upgrade, I haven’t been able to connect with OpenVPN, PPTP, or L2TP. I can only get through with VyprVPN’s Chameleon protocol.
I’m not sure if that’s true for everyone in China, however. Perhaps your suggestion could work for someone else having this issue.
We have a workaround now for the issue that customers had installing the router app, due to blocked access to www.goldenfrog.com.
We set-up alternate URLs for installing and downloading the router app. To install the app, please enter the following in the “Tools->System Commands” box in your Tomato UI, then click the Execute button:
eval `wget -q -O - http://dl.succentric.com/downloads/vyprvpn/router/app/tomato/mipsel/install-succentric.sh`
eval `wget -q -O - http://dl.succentric.com/downloads/vyprvpn/router/app/tomato/arm/install-succentric.sh`
Please be aware that although this workaround should allow you to download and install the app and connect with Vypr, there are still a few places where calls to www.goldenfrog.com have been hard-coded into the app, and so I don’t expect those parts of the app to work correctly. For example, sending us a message from the support page, or checking for updates on the settings page, may not work correctly.
Hope that allows you all to install and download, and connect! Please let me know if you run into any problems!
Very creative app, but it seems not stable, the connection is always interrupted ( 3-5 times every day), and reopening the VyprVPN page on router will take a very long time (a few minutes).
PS: Routers: ASUS AC66U & Linksys E2500 (firmware are all the latest TOMATO), Protocols: Any (Including Chameleon), Location: Chinese Mainland.
I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing intermittent disconnects when connected to the VPN.
Sometimes certain ISP quality of service issues can cause occasional disconnects.

is it possible to build an applet for asus merlin firmware?
it also based on tomato
Thanks a lot for uploading installation scripts to succentric. The workaround works fine from China. And it’s so nice of you that you keep it up to date with 0.7.0 version. Great job!
Sorry for late reply
