I don't want an ACK queue for my traffic shaping configuration, instead I want that Penalty IP acks goes to the Penalty IP queue, for example.
How I can accomplish this?
I'm running a pfSense 2.0 Box.
Why don't you want ACK shaping? That is a good thing. If you want penalizing of bad IPs, does the wizard not set that right for you?
I mean that I want ACK shaping, but not in a different and completely separated queue. I want that the ACKs from John go to the John's queue and the Smidth's ACKs go to the Smidth queue.
It's possible? If it is, how I accomplish that?
Thanks in advance.
I'm not sure that can readily be done from the GUI. Given how small ACks generally are, I'm also not sure it will really accomplish anything.

Just do not setup the ack queue on the rules?
Oh, yeah, maybe. I read it as meaning that he wanted the ACK prioritization, but per user. Re-reading it though, that's an assumption on my part that is unwarranted.
I think that maybe the way is as you say, but I had my doubts. I tried putting in the ACK/Queue rule the same queue for both rules, but the configuration complained with a "ACK queue must not be the same that the queue configured" error.
So, when I want that the ACKs goes to a queue that it's already shaped, simply I don't put an ACK queue specification in the rule.
That is exactly what I want.
Thanks both of you, guys.
