Use traffic shaping without egress filtering?



  • Hi,

    I tried enabling the traffic shaper, but all my traffic went into the low priority queue instead of into their respective queues.

    Is this because I had an 'Allow Any Any' on the LAN interface firewall rules?  I have at least two networks where the requirement is that the traffic be shaped without egress filtering - how would I do this?

    Are you supposed to integrate the shaping rules into your regular firewall rules, or keep them separate in the Floating tab?

    Thanks,

    Todd



  • I solved the problem of everything going into the P2P catch-all queue by not selecting to set up a catch-all queue in the first place during the wizard, as suggested by this guide:

    Traffic shaping seems to be working well now, and all shaping rules are indeed in the Floating tab.
