• If i buy one of those lintex router (http://linitx.com/product_info.php?cPath=4&products_id=909)
    that has 6 NIC

    and say, using Nic 1 for Internet and Nic 2-6 for LAN,
    Can I then configure pfsense to have low prioritizing  Nic 2 and  standard prioritizing Nic 3 and high prioritizing Nic 3- 6 ?
    Basically QOS based on Network card and not the protocol.


  • The Traffic shaper supports only 2 Interfaces atm (at least the traffic shaper wizard). There is still work going on with the traffic shaper. This will be possible in the future but no timeframe yet.


  • Thanks for the response.

    Then, Will this scenario be possible :

    I have 5 computer connected to my Lintex router trough LAN.
    Can I configure pfsense to have low prioritizing  computer 1 based on the "IpNumber/Mac Address" and standard prioritizing computer 2 based on the "IpNumber/Mac Address" and high prioritizing computer 3-6 based on their "IpNumber/Mac Address" ?

    Yes this can be done but not so easily with the wizard. You will need to run the wizard then create custom queues and rules. I use this setup on my lan where I give piority and 59% of the bandwidth to a set of computers (me only ;)) and 39% to a few others. However you can't use mac addresses so I had to make use of static arp to assign the ipaddress.
