In many of modern networks asymmetrical paths where the response takes a different path than the request are a fact of life. This is because the path we choose for outbound traffic is based on our routing table but the response is based on the routing table of the responder and we frequently have little or no control over that remote routing table.

Is this causing a problem in your client network? If so can you clarify the issue?

This network is our customer WAN,So,We can control the whole network routing.

So,this time,how can i control the response path,if it can be solved by using OSFP?EIGRP?BGP?or,Policy routing?

They are many and many branch in the whole china,how we can add a new need-QoS application in a shortly time in every city branch,(i.e.,VoIP)?

Thanks a lot for your relply!!!!
