Wizrd rules src & dest reversed?



  • I thought I'd give the traffic shaper a go and configured it up for VoIP. I connect to a remote asterisk server, so picked the asterisk option, gave it some bandwidth and off we went.

    I am running 1.2-BETA-1-TESTING-SNAPSHOT-06-04-2007. I check the queues and made a call. I was confused to see that nothing had gone into the VoIP queues. so I checked the rules and found them looking like this :-

    WAN -> LAN  *  * <asterisk box="" ip="">qVOIPDown/qVOIPUp
    LAN -> WAN * <asterisk box="" ip="">* qVOIPUp/qVOIPDown

    I can see that the source and destination were the wrong way round way round, I changed them to this :-

    WAN -> LAN  *  <asterisk box="" ip="">* qVOIPDown/qVOIPUp
    LAN -> WAN * * <asterisk box="" ip="">qVOIPUp/qVOIPDown

    and its all working fine now, the traffic is going into the queues as it should. Thought I'd better mention it as it looks like a bug in the shaper wizard.

  • The wizard instructs you to enter the "phone ip".    That is the reason you reversed them.

    Either way we suggest using an alias that contains the phone ip's and any of the internet server or local asterisk server ip's.

    Oops, sorry, must have mis-read that. That makes sense now.
