I have it working successfully with Release 1.0.beta10 in bridge mode. I only have two classes: Default and SMTP. My initial goal was to prevent my Exchange 2007 server from flooding my pipe when users send large attachments en-masse (Exchange’s built-in throttling mechanisms are junk). After considerable searching I decided to try Zeroshell. As a newbie to Linux Qos (Qos in general) I spent about half a day reading and testing Zeroshell configuration(s) and then dropped my Zeroshell transparent bridge in between my lan and gateway. Bingo!

I’m not expecting it to, but If Zeroshell should fail all I have to do patch around the bridge to restore service – an excellent feature of the transparent bridge concept.

I am managing my Zeroshell system via the web interface and SSH to the console. Its working great so far!
