Tomato Setup Guide

Got your fancy custom firmware router? Put Windscribe on it!

Looks complicated? Buy a pre-configured router.

Step 1

Get OpenVPN Config file and credentials (requires a pro account). You will also need the CA Cert and TLS Auth Key.

Step 2

Open up the Tomato control panel, and click on the "VPN tunneling" tab, and then select "OpenVPN Client".

Step 3

Open the .ovpn config file you downloaded in Step 1 with a text editor and find the line that says "remote". You will see xx.windscribe.com, xx = country of your choice. This will be the the "Server Address/Port". The number that follows is the "Port".

Step 4

Fill out the remaining fields as follows:

Interface Type: TUN

Protocol: Depends on your selection in Step 1. This could be UDP or TCP. Leave as UDP if you are unsure.

Server Address/Port: Hostname from Step 3

Port: Port from Step 3. Make it 443 if you are unsure.

Firewall: Automatic

Authorization Mode: TLS

Username/Password Authentication: Checked

Username: Username from Step 1. This will be different from your Windscribe username.

Password: Password from Step 1. This will be different from your Windscribe password.

Extra HMAC authorization (tls-auth): Outgoing (1)

Click on "Advanced" tab.

Redirect Internet traffic: Checked

Accept DNS configuration: Exclusive

Encryption Cipher: AES-256-CBC

Compression: Enabled

TLS Renegotiation Time: -1

Connection retry: 30

Verify server certificate (tls-remote): Unchecked

Custom Configuration: Copy/paste from below:

keysize 256
verb 2
ns-cert-type server

persist-tun

Click on "Keys" tab.

Static Key: Paste contents of ta.key from the .zip you downloaded in Step 1. You should open it via a text editor.

Certificate Authority: Paste contents of ca.crt from the .zip you downloaded in Step 1. You should open it via a text editor.

Your screen should look something like this:

Step 5
