Setting ports priorities, how?



  • i'm a noob and used ipcop before, ipcop has its feature wherein you can assign ports priorities from high to low (high, medium, low).

    is pfsense has this feature too?

    thanks



  • It's propably 4 years since I last looked at IPcop so help me out please. What do you want to do with priorities on ports?
    There is a traffic shaper you might want to look at.



  • i would like to give high priorities with YM ports, my own server/client ports, and less priorities with other else.

    about traffic shape of pfsense, i neve looked at that yet.

    are you sure that traffic shaping you're referring to will serve the things i want?

    thanks

  • …depends on how you define a port.  ;D

    If you're talking about network ports on a switch or NIC you are probably right.
    If you want to priorize a service like HTTP on port 80 then use traffic shaping.



  • here:

    my client/server ports = port 10
    ym ports = 5000-5001, 5000-5010, 5050, 5100
    http port = 80
    client advertisement port = 3600, 3800

    i would like to give those ports higher priorities compared with other ports, so, if traffic shaping will do that, please teach me how to do it.

    thanks

  • btw

    i have this screenie of my ipcop's re:port priorities



  • @cruzades:

    here:

    my client/server ports = port 10
    ym ports = 5000-5001, 5000-5010, 5050, 5100

    Simple way - use wizard and change wizard-result-rules as you need's



  • The traffic shaper is exactly what you want.
    You can configure queues and assign priorities to them. A lot more granular than 'high', 'med' and 'low' with the cop.

    Check out the shaper wizard and adjust the results if you want.



  • thanks Chris

    i will look to that soon, too bad, my pfsense box just broke down yesterday and i'm starting to re-build it again.

    my setup was 1.2-RC3 and i'm gonna use 1.2-RC2 at this time :(

    i guess, 1.2-RC3 is not that really stable yet compared to RC2, wad do think?



  • Agreed.
    1.2RC3 has some issues - at least some of the versions. But since we are lacking a build no. it's hard to tell which one…
