I need your suggest to use Skype thru Pfsense. In my office we use always Skype and often the connection isn't clean.
At moment we use just modem+router and 5 pc connected by wireless.
I would like to install pfsense but in this case I don't know how setup Pfsense for use Skype.
Someone can help me?
Thanks in advance.
Hmmm? What exactly you need to set? Allow outbound LAN traffic (done by default). Set.
thanks for swift reply, my question is if I have configure something in particular to use Skype at best.
Already I have configured pfsense at home per Lan Wireless and Wan and all is ok.
But now for Skype I have setup something in particular?
Is something actually broken?
No nothing is broken, just I wish better voice connection (sometimes fall down connection or not clean) maybe modem isn't enough good… and I thought... if I install pfsense maybe I sortie out from these problems.
So you think Pfsense can better performance on Skype? and in case I have to setup something on Pfsense?

You need a stable enough Internet connection to maintain the quality you desire, and perhaps some traffic shaping to prioritize your Skype traffic.
Thank you very much for your suggest Kom, so I will search to configure traffic shaping to prioritize Skype traffic, in case I let you know if all is ok.
I have problem to configure traffic shaping because I have following error message:
pfctl:ath0_wlan0:drivers doesn't support altq
somenone has idea to fix this issue.
This issue you don't fix. https://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/4406
You can use limiters there, not shaping. Or stop cloning the iface. Or - get a real AP and plug it via RJ45.
thank you very much for your swift answer!
