Need some help setting up my traffic shaping



  • Need some help setting up my traffic shaping.
    I run a plex media server with rtorrent on the side. And I want the plex media server to always have priority on the network.
    I also want rtorrrent downloads to be of lowest priority so I dont have to mess around with manual traffic limiting.
    I use  a single unique port for rtorrent and I've tried to set up traffic shaping using the wizard but it does not seem to work.
    Any help is much appreciated.

    You will need to experiment.

    What exactly have you tried and what were the results?

    A good tutorial: http://www.linksysinfo.org/index.php?threads/qos-tutorial.68795/



  • Traffic shaping best practice. Your default should be that all traffic is lowest priority, then you make rules that will lift specific traffic to higher priority. P2P uses ports all over the place. Just because the listening port is specified doesn't mean it isn't free to use others. I've tried.
