Re: altq on what interface on a bridged setup

I read that you should only queue on your outgoing interface.
Does this rule also apply on a bridged setup?

So in my setup:
               [router]-->[ext_if]-->[inf_if]-->[LAN]
                        bridge

Should I only apply queueing on the ext_if?

No, you apply queueing to both BUT you can only queue outgoing traffic *on that interface*. So on ext_if you'd queue outbound traffic and on int_if you'd queue inbound traffic. Note that you cant really queue traffic that is being sent *to you* directly since by the time the packet get to your machine it's already gone over the wire. All queueing that applies to inbound traffic is indirect.
