I have a cisco 2811 router with advanced security IOS (Attached config). I want to block or give the least priority to P2P traffic and give high priority to other applications like http,https,smtp,voice chat, webcam etc since its a military camp and soldiers want to be in touch with their families. I am a CCNA and on my way to CCNP so I have a fair amount of exposures to cisco but I have never tried this.

How do I go about achieving the above?

Cisco IOS Firewall enhances protection against network worms, HTTP vulnerabilities, and buffer overflows with HTTP Application Inspection (AI). New P2P (Peer to Peer) control capabilities support blocking or rate limiting these protocols for increased network availability and tighter network usage control. Cisco IOS Firewall also introduces session limits for inspected traffic to defend against DoS attacks and enable control of network resource utilization.
