Set and Forward ToS or DiffServ values
Hi.. I need to set Tos for some traffic in pfsense, which another box will handle it.
Just to clarify:
I am putting a pfsense in an existing structure, with an operational gateway, and for all traffic forwarded by pfsense I wish to tag with a ToS value… and in my server I will define a policy based routing which will choose routes (old gateway table or pfsense table) by ToS field in packages...
so... I set queues in traffic shaper for Wan and Lan interfaces, and set None/Queue in Ackqueue/Queue advanced feature of my rules... but when I sniff traffic in my internal hosts, the ToS in Ip header always is 0x0.
is there any way to change this field for some traffic forwarded by pfsense ??
thanks a lot..
pfSense can currently only read, not set, the TOS/DSCP bits in packets.
They must be set by the originator of the traffic (phone, PBX, etc)
thanks for the information…
could you tell me if this feature is in roadmap (or future plans)
or if will be a good idea suggest it on readmine.pfsense.org ?
I don't know if it's there or not, feel free to search on redmine
I don't know if that will ever be possible, but you can put in a feature request ticket (target=future) for it.
