Traffic Shapping : High Priority on particular port



  • Hello,

    is there a way, in pfsense to give the highest priority over the rest of the traffic to an application running on a particular port?
    We are currently running in our VPN an application running on port 10000 and this bandwidth should have the highest priority over the rest of the traffic.
    Any suggestion will be appreciated ?

    Regards,

  • Create a set of queues that have higher priority then other regular traffic (not as high as the ACK queues of course), create a rule set that matches your desired traffic patterns, and assign them to your newly created queues. Since these queues will be higher priority then the rest of the traffic on the network, and those rules are the only ones sending traffic to them, your desired traffic will have higher priority over all the rest of the traffic.
