Re: Documentation on tc

A good point of reference woulde be the tc READM??? examples at the iproute distribution. Also some helpful examples can be found in the Linux QoS Howto at http://qos.ittc.ukans.edu/.
As for a prior question I made about the new port bind after the client contacting the well known application port, I found out (I imagine that a lot of you already knew) that even if a
new port is used at the server, ip packets have as destination the well known port of the application, and only the server's operating system makes the distiction (netstat & tcpdump shows
that). Anyway the conversation that followed was very helpful and interesting.
Thank you all
