12:00 AM - Computer day.. bsd traffic shaping and more.
Hmm.. its computer fix it day. I started working on my ibook and both bsd boxes (webserver and home router) last night. The ibook is backing up still from last night! I'm trying to copy the 20gb+ home directory in an apple backup file to my router. Its slower than shit but thats the wireless. I should have plugged it in before i started.
I'm also trying to get several bugs fixed on my router. I installed a upnp daemon that has very little documentation into bsd. If it works, i can get more transfers out of msn and p2p clients along with better integration with bill borg games. I just added the multicast routing (MROUTING) option to the kernel so it won't do shit till i reboot most likely. upnp makes use of multicast. Interesting huh?
I also setup traffic shaping last night with good old pipes and queues. Right now i'm just capping to my actual connection speed so that the router can limit transmissions more logically. My next step is to setup limited priorites for voip traffic and then dns/ssh/web traffic and finally everything else. I had to rebuild the kernel and userland on both bsd boxes due to a slew of security advisories. (4+ which is a lot in unix land)
