Title: Trying to migrate from Pfsense, traffic shaping is really confusing
Post by: kitsuna on April 16, 2018, 08:11:23 am
I have been attempting to migrate from pfsense, however one snag i am hitting is that Traffic shaping is significantly more confusing and difficult to setup vs pfsense due to the lack of wizard. I believe i have figured it out but now the problem is that i cant figure out how to verify if its even working. Pfsense has a live view of the ques where i can see how much traffic is going through each one and verify things are being sorted correctly. The status page for opnsense doesnt seem to tell me anything. How can i verify if my rules are properly being used?

Also what is the proper syntax for using a range of ports in the rules? is it say 27000-27030 or 27000:27030

Hi!

In this topic: https://forum.opnsense.org/index.php?topic=7423.0 (https://forum.opnsense.org/index.php?topic=7423.0) you can see an easy way to set up a working traffic shaper. I did it and works very well.


Cheers,

Thanks for the link but thats not my goal, i am trying to prioritize game traffic above all else, based on some testing i did this seems to be working. I can be in a custom game on HOTS and then use axel to completely saturate my downlink and the game wont be affected by more than a few ms (generally around +6ms) seems to be pretty solid.


Still trying to figure out how to input a port range properly into rules, sadly you can type literally anything into dest port and it wont complain, somehow i dount that asd87w392 is proper port syntax. Anyone know the proper syntax for putting a port range into the rules?

I set up a configuration based in that post and the information I get from www.bufferbloat.net (http://www.bufferbloat.net) and works quite well. Torrent with no limit, online games witch no problems (as reported by the usual gamer,  my brother).

In my experience, it's the simpliest (and effective) QOS I've ever set up.
