I'm writing not for technical problems but for a simple question.Do You know if there is a distro which is ready for traffic shaping etc. 'out of the box'? I mean a distro which does not require patching the kernel and/or iptables and/or installing from source etc. and gives the user most of the tools needed (imq, ipp2p, l7filter and so on).
I think the short answer is 'no'. I use OpenWrt on embedded systems for part of our network and it's quite good in this respect, but I wasn't willing to put in the effort to make it run on regular x86 PC hardware (I think it does run but there were too many unknowns for my tastes). So where we use PCs I install Fedora and build the extra modules I need myself. It is a bit strange that nobody seems to be able to succeed with a router distribution -- there have been many attempts over the years but they've all failed (wikipedia has a good page listing them all). _______________________________________________ LARTC mailing list LARTC@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx http://mailman.ds9a.nl/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/lartc
