Netflix traffic management using Application Prioritization in QoS


#1

Hello,

We (like many others) are trying to manage Netflix’s impact on our community ISP.
It would seem like Netflix could be a custom application we could manage using Application Prioritization - similar to the way Skype is pre-populated in that menu. Is there a way to do that? If so can you provide some guidance as to how?

Thanks!

Leighton

Hi Leighton,

Netflix traffic cannot be identified by ports, as it uses common ports 80 and 443. Hopefully we can add this to the list at some point, otherwise you may need to invest in a stand-alone (and very expensive) appliance.

Thanks -Tim
