Hi all. I must be doing something wrong but can't figure it out.
I can't seem to get traffic shaping to limit inbound traffic different than
outbound traffic. I am trying to get my IP phone to connect to the office
and have max priority inbound and outbound. All other traffic should wait
for the IP phone traffic. FWIW it's a Mitel phone system.
I have the inbound and outbound pipes set to about 5% less than my actual
throughput. I only have 2 pipes listed.
No. Bandwidth Delay PLR Queue Mask Description
1 580 Kbit/s
2 4000 Kbit/s m_Total
I have 4 queues. 2 for the mitel in and out with 100% weight and 2
restricted with 50% weight for everything else. I'll make it more detailed
once I get this working.
No. Pipe Weight Mask Description
1 m_Total Upload 100 mitel out
2 m_Total Download 100 mitel in
3 m_Total Upload 50 out restricted
4 m_Total Download 50 in
Ok, this is where I've really been experimenting
If Proto Source Destination Target Description
LAN<> * LAN net 126.96.36.199 mitel out
WAN<> * 188.8.131.52 LAN net mitel in
WAN<> * * * out rest..
I've been hitting http://speakeasy.net/speedtest to punish my line for my
phone test. The above setting throttles the traffic of the speed test to
around 400k up and down. What can I do so from inside the LAN I can restrict
the upload speed to the OUT RESTRICTED queue 400kbs and downloads to the IN
RESTRICTED for around 3000kbs
Changing the rules to inbound vs outbound? If my computer connects to
speakeasy and tries to download something.. is that still considered
outbound because I initiated it? I'm not even worried about external
connections to my internal servers now. I just want to make sure if I'm
uploading or downloading something from my home computer that my IP phone
still have priority. I realize I don't have a separate IN REST... incoming
rule, but everyting I do that, I get full download speed that kills my VOIP
Thanks, hope this makes sense
