    Does anyone have experience with the various Linux-based firewall firmwares?

    I'm running DD-WRT with Entware now, and am looking to add NFS support and maybe reverse proxying via HAproxy or Nginx to my firewall. Does anyone have any experience extending OpenWRT or Tomato?

    I really like Tomato myself... I've also used the others, and prefer
    OpenWRT over DD-WRT. Right now, I'm using a Ubiquiti router and APs, so
    kind of stuck with their UX that I don't care for.

    DD-WRT was the first open-source router firmware I used, and I really liked it at the time. Then years ago, I got a router that (at the time) sounded like it wouldn't support DD-WRT easily, so I put Tomato on it. I got to like Tomato's UI. Several months ago I bought a new router for DD-WRT, and I kinda miss Tomato's UI now, though DD-WRT seems capable as always though.

    Yeah, I ran Tomato on WRT54Gs and loved it. Loved the traffic graphs, as I think I was on a 5gb cap back then!

    I miss it... was much easier to work with imho than anything else I've
    used.
