 Subject:  traffic shaping with pptp vpn
 Date:  Thu, 16 Jun 2005 07:48:02 -0500
Hello All,

I use m0n0wall and have an Asterisk iPBX server behind it on my lan. I
use a the traffic shaping to make certain that voip packets get top
priority. However, there's one case that I don't know how to
accomodate. If I establish a pptp vpn connection to my employers head
office then upload traffic on that connection seems to bypass traffic
shaping. Since I have to do this to connect to an Exchange server I
find that voip calls get choppy (outbound leg only) if I also send
email with a substantial attachment.

How might I alter my setup to stop this from occurring?
