What is Tomato (Shibby) and How to Use It with Our VPN Service

Share This!

Tomato is a third party firmware for wireless routers. Like DD-WRT, it is open-source and is based on Linux.

Tomato sports a very friendly graphical user interface that makes it easy for users to navigate its options. It also has intuitive network performance graphs, which allow users to monitor their connection without hassle.

With Tomato loaded onto your router, you will be able to do much more with your router, including setting up our VPN connection directly on it so that all of your devices that’s connected to your router’s network will be securely-routed through our service. 


Devices without native VPN support will greatly benefit from this, such as: 


  • Freesat Set Top Boxes 
  • TV Box (i.e Roku, etc.)
  • Game Consoles (ie PS3, PS4, Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii, etc.)
  • Internet radio players
  • Network music players i.e. Sonos, Logitech Squeezebox etc.
  • Some version of smartphones
  • …and pretty much anything else with a network connection.


Tomato also supports a number of VPN protocols that we use: OpenVPN and PPTP.


All these added functionalities sound great! 


However, please keep in mind that flashing Tomato (or any other third-party firmware) will void your router’s warranty
