I have been using PF for several years now and used IPFW previous to
PF that I've grown more and more fond of. I now need to manage
bidirectional traffic I have used Dummynet before to do similar
things but it is my understanding that Altq can only manage outgoing
traffic although I find the occasional example of it managing incoming
like one to limit window's email assuming that I'm reading it properly.
My questions are:
Am I correct in saying that Altq can not manage bidirectional traffic?
I understand the dummynet can be used with pf and if so does anyone know
of a howto to get me started? I would rather not switch to IPFW right now.
