I ordered the service and am waiting delivery of my unit. I was curious of anyone has traffic shaping running to improve/guarantee smooth operation. I would be happy to contribute to this as well. In particular, I am interested in FreeBSD ipfw or Linux iptables.

Hi

Ill just give a brief reply for now to point you in the right direction.
As far as QoS goes you might want to look at dummynet or altq under FreeBSD.
See what you find on them - let me know if you want any help.

I was looking at the Linksys BEFSR81. It seems to have a Weighted-Fair type queuing method. This may be very good for the Vonage application.

For QoS I use HTB under linux, I'm still tweaking, but this is the script I'm using.. feel free to update it, but post it the new one so we can all benefit from it Smile
I based lots of it from wondershaper, so credits also to the author of wondershaper!!
I have this script under /etc/conf.d/ in GENTOO.
Pass START / STOP or STATUS to it. If anyone has gentoo I'll post the corresponding /etc/init.d/qos script.
Your kernel needs support for HTB and you need tc.

-------
bash-2.05b$ cat qos
#!/bin/sh

PostPosted: Sat Aug 09, 2003 9:30 am    Post subject: FreeBSD ipfw traffic shapping rules Reply with quote Back to top

I found a script that I modified to give high priority to Vonage traffic. I have used it with mixed results. It helped, but not as much as I would like. It could also use some fine tuning but it's a start.

There is also a way to add dynamic rules, but I haven't figured out how to do that with bandwidth limits.

Anyway, if you use FreeBSD, try this script. You will need dummynet, et al installed in the kernel.

ipfw pipe 1 config bw "14400Kbyte/s"
ipfw pipe 2 config bw "14400Kbyte/s"

ipfw queue 10 config weight 90 pipe 1 mask src-port 0xffff
ipfw add 50010 queue 10 tcp from any ssh to any via dc0 in

ipfw queue 11 config weight 90 pipe 2 mask dst-port 0xffff
ipfw add 50015 queue 11 tcp from any to any ssh via dc0 out

ipfw queue 30 config weight 1 pipe 1
ipfw add 50030 queue 30 icmp from any to any via dc0 in

ipfw queue 31 config weight 1 pipe 2
ipfw add 50035 queue 31 icmp from any to any via dc0 out

ipfw queue 40 config weight 1 pipe 1
ipfw add 50040 queue 40 tcp from any pop3,smtp to any via dc0 in

ipfw queue 41 config weight 1 pipe 2
ipfw add 50045 queue 41 tcp from any to any pop3,smtp via dc0 out

ipfw queue 50 config weight 1 pipe 1
ipfw add 50050 queue 50 tcp from any to any via dc0 in

ipfw queue 51 config weight 1 pipe 2
ipfw add 50055 queue 51 tcp from any to any via dc0 out

ipfw queue 52 config weight 1 pipe 1
ipfw add 50060 queue 52 udp from any to any via dc0 in

ipfw queue 53 config weight 1 pipe 2
ipfw add 50065 queue 53 udp from any to any via dc0 out

ipfw queue 60 config weight 100 pipe 1
ipfw add 10110 queue 60 udp from any 5060 to any via dc0 in
ipfw add 10120 queue 60 udp from any 123 to any via dc0 in
ipfw add 10130 queue 60 udp from any 5061 to any via dc0 in
ipfw add 10140 queue 60 udp from any 69 to any via dc0 in
ipfw add 10150 queue 60 udp from any 10000-20000 to any via dc0 in

ipfw queue 61 config weight 100 pipe 2
ipfw add 10210 queue 61 udp from any to any 5060 via dc0 out
ipfw add 10220 queue 61 udp from any to any 123 via dc0 out
ipfw add 10230 queue 61 udp from any to any 5061 via dc0 out
ipfw add 10240 queue 61 udp from any to any 69 via dc0 out
ipfw add 10250 queue 61 udp from any to any 10000-20000 via dc0 out

I'm setting up a new FreeBSD-5.x box, with PF and ALTQ enabled. Does someone have an example queue config for Voip on this.

My bandwidth is Comcast cable.


Thanks.

PostPosted: Mon Jun 13, 2005 6:44 pm    Post subject: OpenBSD PF (pf.conf) for Vonage Reply with quote Back to top

Since asking (months ago), I've tried doing some homework (researchig the net, basically), and I've not yet come up with some samples of pf.conf for Vonage.

Someone out here must be using OpenBSD/FreeBSD PF... ?

I've basically a SOHO network (home office), it's relatively simple - but my old system is still using ipfw, and I want to ditch it.

Any help, pointers, or just plain examples, would be appreciated... thank you.

Just so you know.. the ATA itself sets it's TOS high... so you can just look at it.. no need to tag it.
