Azureus and uTorrent are clients of the Bittorrent protocol which you already have included, so no worries, your setup is fine. Just make sure you apply it on the correct WAN interface on the outgoing flow.
I have it applied to the outgoing and incoming connections for the bridge. I beleive that is what the guide has instructed to do.
We have a quad core box, 2.4GHz with 4 gigs of ram and gig ethernet connections. What type of bandwidth should we expect to be able to push through this box? WE have a 60meg up and down fiber connection, with roughly 320 users (no idea how many concurrent) that will be behind this box. Will this set up handle this? I have read where it should do just fine, just seeing what you thought.
I don’t use a bridge, but the principal is to apply QoS filtering on the outgoing flow of the wan interface.
That is what essentially what we have done. We applied the QoS settings to the inbound and outbound connections. Or is applying the filtering to the inbound redunant and not needed?
These are the instructions we followed from the ZC documentation file “â€¢QoS and Traffic Shaping in Transparent Bridge mode”
Adding QoS classes to the bridged interfaces
Now it is the moment to assign the QoS classes created in the previous steps to the network interfaces whose outgoing traffic you want to control.
The steps to be performed to assign the QoS classes to the interfaces are the following ones:
â€¢From [QoS]->[Interface Manager] click the button [Add Class] related to the ETH00 interface. From the dialog window that appears (look at the figure) click the button [Add] for the VOIP, P2P, SHELL and BULK QoS classes;
â€¢Add the same classes to the ETH01 interface with the same procedure of the previous step;
â€¢Enable the Quality of Service for ETH00 and ETH01 by clicking on the related flags “On”;
â€¢Save the changes by clicking on the button [Activate last Changes].
Note that you have activated the QoS directly on the members (ETH00,ETH01) of the bridge and not on the BRIDGE00.
At this point the QoS is working on the bridge, but all traffic is outgoing from the DEFAULT class because you haven’t classified the traffic yet. In the next steps we will do that.
