I recently was given the task to automate the backups of several remote routers that we manage that run tomato firmware.
Here is the Tomato developer’s site: www.polarcloud.com/tomato
The main goals were:
- To use https
- To be automated (Cron)’d later
- To scale from 1 to 1XXX routers
I tested it on Tomato Firmware 1.28 using my ASUS RT-N16 router, but it should work for any Tomato-firmware router.
There will be some slight modifications to run in cron, but let me know and I’ll be glad to help.
Download the .zip file here: tomatobackup1405
Extract the file so the full path will be /root/tomatobackup1405
Read the README inside the folder
chmod +x tomatobackup1405.sh
Add your hosts to the tomatobackup1405_hosts.cfg file
If successful, you will see a subfolder with the date YYYYMMDD and the file with CoName-tomato_v
If there are connection problems, you’ll see an error message.
EDIT: There was a python rewrite by Sam@orgraphone.org

Let me know if you have any thoughts or suggestions.
