Do I want/need QoS-Traffic Shaping ?



  • Hello,

    Alix 2d13, running pfSense 2 over here.
    vr0: to the LAN switch
    vr1/pppo2: WAN to the DSL-modem
    vr2: to the VoIP switch

    What I want seems simple: (if any) VoIP (SIP/RTP) traffic should be priviledged to the rest of the connexion (even is someone is sucking the whole internet)

    OR (if it is simpler to implement)

    Anything coming to/from vr2/VoIP should be priviledged to the rest of the connexion (even is someone is sucking the whole internet)

    Today, with my poor 3M/512k DSL line (yes, I know, right in the middle of nowhere), when having a phone call, I have to ask everybody to stop surfing or conversation will lag.
    :-\



  • Is it really rude because untranslated and non-introduced or just spam ?



  • Actually, I think what I want to achieve is just like this: 'always let VoIP (RTP/SIP) packets go first'
    Is this available trhough the wizard?
    the queues?
    I understand it is exactly the opposite  of limiters…right?



  • Follow the Traffic shaper wizard (single wan/multi lan), and it will eventually ask you about VOIP provider/settings. Fill in the details and it will create a rule for voip traffic, found on the 'floating rules' tab.
