Getting Started With The Traffic Shaper



  • I've read just about every resource I can find on the PFSense traffic shaping abilities, but I still have a few basic questions.

    Why do I see traffic in the default queues that the wizard creates before I create any firewall rules to put traffic in them?

    My PFSense installation has 3 interfaces. LAN, DMZ, and WAN. I have Polycom video conferencing equipment on the DMZ network that I want to prioritize over anything else including LAN. Would I just need queues to prioritize the video conferencing traffic on the DMZ and WAN interfaces or all 3?

    Thanks.



  • @vlassic:

    Traffic needs to go somewhere. Uncategorized traffic (traffic which is not directed somewhere else by a rule) falls within the default queue for that interface. There must be 1 default queue for each interface.

    Which scheduler are your trying to configure? (PRIQ, CBQ, HFSC)
