DHCP and QoS

Hi all ,

I'm looking for some way to base the QoS in my LAN on the host's IP address . Of course , there'r many hosts in that network , some of them get their addresses from the DHCP and anyway the question is - is there any way to make the class-maps based on the host without enter the commands manually ? Maybe bind them to DHCP allocation ? Obviously , ACL will do the job but with many hosts on LAN that task becomes very complicated (to me and ,maybe the router too ... just think about many ACLs and MQC commands related to any one among these ACLs) . The perfect solution will be some sort of template , which became active for any device in the LAN ... grouping all together into some "global policy" running on the router . As it happens to be for remote-access clients (L2TP for instance) .

I'd appreciate any advice ,

have a nice day ,

Alex .


Re: DHCP and QoS

Hi Alex,

I dont think so that you can make class-maps using hostname.

if there are good number of hosts, you can create a separate VLAN for them and make a ACL for that particular subnet. so this way your ACL wont grow..

hope this helps ..
