I'm having a problem with this build and my iPhone's Netflix app.  I was searching and noticed the issue in a Tomato forum already:


http://tomatousb.org/forum/t-260275/build-48:netflix-app-ipad-issue#post-870926

Any idea what could be blocking Netflix via a iPad/iPhone but still let it work via a Wii or PC?

Netgear WRN3500L

DD-WRT v24-sp2 (08/29/10) stdkong - build 15000

iPhone 3Gs running Netflix app (version 1.1.0 build 421396)

Update: Such an odd issue but found two more threads:

This due to a security enhancements in dnsmasq, the option:

stop-dns-rebind

in /tmp/dnsmasq.conf blocks certain hacks to the webinterface through a clients browser. The next build will have an option to disable this feature.
Another workaround is described here:

Thanks for all the hard work, I'm loving the build!

Rather than change my router I just opted for the manual DNS change in my iPhones. Luckily, the phones allow a static DNS entry under the DHCP settings page. Like the forum suggested, Google's public DNS (8.8.8.8) worked fine, at least as a work-around.

Turning of the dns-rebind blocking will work but then exposes your network to DNS rebind attacks. The rebind block was added to fix a security problem.

Entering a DNS server into the IPad is the best option.
