QoS in floating rules only or in LAN specific rules too?



  • Hi, sorry if this has been explained before, but I have a very hard time getting an answer to this question.

    After reading through through threads explaining qos+floating rules I created floating rules for all services I want to shape specifying the appropriate queues.
    All floating rules are outbound, quick, and I haven't selected any interfaces in any of those rules.

    Of course I also need rules on lan interfaces to even allow packets in.
    Should appropriate queues in interface specific rules be selected too, or not (leave queue as "none")?

    Thanks, any info/help on this would be greatly appreciated!

    You should generally not specify queue.

    See this thread http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,24773.msg129341.html#msg129341 for more information.
