 Betreff: [m0n0wall-dev] traffic shaping (queues, acks and interactive)
 
 Hi,
 
 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!
 
 Cheers,
 Michel Schilthuizen

I have read up a bit on this command and found that it indeed should be able 
to do all of the stuff I requested.

Manuel, wouldn't it be nice to add the possibility to create some pipes and 
assign traffice to them through the WebGUI? (Or does this conflict with the 
way some of the other stuff was done)

Otherwise, could someone give me some pointers on how to run a script that I 
store on the floppy at startup? (I run M0n0wall from cd, so then I only have 
to create a new cd once)

Cheers again,
