    i know tomatousb supports this function, and with merlins' build being based on tomato i would think there is a way to do it. if so how do i do it.

    You can enable port forwarding on the Administration -> System page if that's what you are referring too (forwarding a local port through an SSH tunnel). That can then be used as a quick'n'dirty VPN, where your SSH client could redirect local port 8888 to a remote port 80 (a NAS, for example).

    Yes, this is the ONLY thing that's holding me back.

    The remote port is what you enter into PuTTY on the machine you're using to tunnel into the home network.

    Help us, Merlin! I've looked all over and cannot find this info.

    The WAN port is not configurable at this time. Asus has started implementing SSH support into the stock firmware, so I don't want to waste my time implementing this, only to see Asus implement it in a different way a few weeks from now, forcing me to rewrite my code. So I'm waiting for them to finalize SSH support on their own end.
