PF and IP Precedence
Hello. I'm using PF on FreeBSD 5.3. I would like to know how PF
handles precedence information in IP packets. I'm referring to the
header data described in RFC 1812 sections 5.3.2 and 5.3.3 (part of TOS
I guess the first question would be, does PF handle precedence
If not, can prioritization based on IP precedence be achieved with ALTQ
or some other mechanism?
The third possibly rhetorical question is maybe IP precedence is an
issue for the kernel and not PF?
I haven't found any good information regarding this issue.
IP precedence prioritization is useful as an easy way to give VoIP
packets priority on a network, among other things.
Any information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
