 Subject:  traffic shaping (queues, acks and interactive)
 Date:  Tue, 30 Dec 2003 12:08:24 +0100

Some time ago, there was a discussion about implementing queues for the 
traffic shaping in M0n0wall. I have read the mail-list archive and could not 
find a definite conclussion on this matter. 

There are two things that I am looking for as an addition to the great 
functionality M0n0wall already offers. 

1. The ability to priorityze acks and interactive traffic (like ssh)
2. The ability to assign an upper and lower limit to certain bandwidht. For 
instance, I have an ftp server for which I could allow 512kbit upload. 
However, when there is other outgoing traffic, (the ftp has low priority) the 
ftp traffic should be limited to 128kbit.

I know this is possible on Linux using queues, but is this also possible in 
M0n0wall? Can anybody steer me into the right direction, so I can try adding 
it to M0n0wall myself? Or has anybody done something like this allready?

It would be great to have this in M0n0wall!
