Can PIX515 prioritise VPN traffic ?

We terminate a number of VPN tunnels on our PIX515, however we also put http and smtp traffic through the same device (and leased line). We are moving some of this traffic to an ADSL so it does not impact on VPN traffic. However, we still have traffic that we don't want to move away from the leased line which has the potential to impact on VPN performance. Can the PIX do any sort of prioritisation/bandwidth allocation based on type(protocol) so we can ensure a consistent bandwidth available for VPN traffic ? If not, what could be used to achieve this in this circumstance ?

Re: Can PIX515 prioritise VPN traffic ?

Hi,

You need policy-routing in order to acheive this. The PIX is not capable of doing this, it would require a IOS-based router.
