If you're using Cisco gear on both ends, you're probably better
off using Class Based Weighted Fair Queueing. If you're trying to keep a
consistant policy across your campus as well as the WAN, the firewall
may come into play. I'd look for an explanation of DSCP, and work from
there. Remember that you can do all the marking that you want, if your
provider isn't listening to you, the QoS isn't going to be effective. If
you'd like, you can contact me off-list and I ca give some more detailed
explanations.

Subject: [fw-wiz] QoS question

Not directly related to firewalls, but I'm wondering if the folks on
here have an opinion on the better QoS scheme for WAN connections you
control both sides of (using Cisco routers)? It would seem the two most
obvious options are priority queues and custom queues. I've read what I
can find for free on the 'Net and I'm still not sure I understand the
differences!

Does your opinion change if there is a firewall involved (got it in
after all anyway)?
