As dummynet can shape incoming on an interface this would be an option to shape traffic inside tunnels as well (before the traffic on the outgoing interface is only seen as encrypted traffic only). I have some setups that work this way pretty well with m0n0wall. However, getting this all under control and even crunching all that logic in a wizard will be a hard task I guess and considering multiple interfaces...

Dummynet does not work with ALTQ/PF.  As soon as you add a RDR, all traffic stops on the firewall.

just a little update: The multiple interface shaping feature is starting to look a bit daunting, altq was not designed for it. The queuing hierarchy created on each interface are totally unrelated. So if you try to shape 1 wan interface over two lans then altq simple can't do it. Probably some combination of dummynet and altq would solve the problem, I'll post my opinions on the wiki later.

Leon, any updates on this?  I've been holding off spending much more time on this until it's proven working (or not)...it _should_ work I think, but it's a bit of a hack to setup as best as I can tell.

No.. I haven't been able to make it work, I was holding off the write up on this until I had absolutely given up. Also I didn't know your were holding off until more proof could be given that it doesn't work, but I was hoping that you could prove me wrong with some test and sample setups. I was still experimenting with several ideas  though I haven't gotten as much time as I would have liked to experiment with them (maybe i spoke too soon of free time cause it seems to be vanishing into work). Maybe this weekend I'll be able to give something more concrete, but please go ahead with your ideas and experiment I check this thread regularly for updates so you can post any success you have had with this. Sorry for the lack of correspondence on irc, it would be nice if we could bounce ideas off each other but I just havn't found the time yet.

I would contribute $25 for proper dual-wan QoS/shaping.

So does this mean that it's not possible to shape across multiple WAN interfaces? Or does it mean that we can't even shape across a bridged WAP and LAN connected to a single WAN..  ???

Any updates on this feature?  Not multi-wan but at least multi-lan such as WAP and LAN.

I'm probably going to just switch to the new beta of m0n0wall for that feature.

I will use this as a catch all qos bountys section.

I would join in with 200$ for a multi interfaces Qos and multi PPPoE Wan support. They are only useful together for me.
Additionally, I would pay 100$ for per IP bandwith limitations in the traffic shaper.
I know all this is not much for the lot of work it will require, but maybe others will join in.

Greetings,
techatdd

Well I'm glad you think my comment was helpful, because I certainly intended for it to be! You shouldn't question the project though -- It's a great project and I enjoy seeing it progress. Oh, and I'm not gone either :)

eickst was looking for a multi-lan traffic shaper, and I suggested m0n0wall. I know that it supports multi-lan traffic shaping, so it could be of use to him.

I also mentioned m0n0wall's new beta because it supports Atheros cards, and since I have an Atheros card, I haven't been able to use the latest version of m0n0wall since they switched back to 4.x since the 1.2x versions. I see that the new m0n0wall beta supports Atheros wireless cards, thus with no advancement in pfSense's multi-lan trafic shaper (and no complaints coming from me about that), I'm going to give m0n0wall a shot.

It's like using the appropriate tool for the job.  Just because you choose to use a screwdriver to screw in a screw doesn't mean you think that hammers suck!

Is this bounty still open?

I'll pony up $100. An IP/MAC-based shaper would be my top request but any movement deserves a contribution.

Feel free to punt this late post if I've missed an update elsewhere.
