Hi all,

How can I enable QOS on the accessport connected to the PIX to restrict the traffic that people are doing it when downloading to lets say 50k?


I have this problem too.

class-map class1

match any

policy-map policy1

class class1

police 128000 8000 confirm-action transmit exceed-action drop

interface fa1/1

service-policy output policy1

the above example will match all network traffic with match any in the class map then will pemir maximum of 128K or traffic any traffic above that will be droped

and apply to the switch interface in the outbound direction

in the case if this is ur switch interface connected to the firewall it will send maximum of 128K to the firewall through that port

good luck

please Rate if helpful

if the vpn go thorugh this switch interface then the vpn will be part of all traffic and might be droped if the switch port go abpve the limit

if the vpn not thorugh this port then nothing to woory about

You can also add a class for the VPN traffic and not subject it to the bandwidth restriction.
