    1. Why does the default Bulk Traffic only list ports 1024-65535? Shouldn't it be 0-65535? That way no Unclassifieds will show up. I know Unclassified can be set to Lowest by default and therefore this is the same thing basically, but I am just wondering why Bulk Traffic has those specific settings. Why not make it catch everything?

    2. How does the ordering of things affect things versus their classes (High, Low, etc). Shouldn't the classes be listed in order always? eg: Highest at top, Lowest at bottom? What happens if I have a Lowest above a Highest?

    1) The default Tomato settings set the priority for ports 1 to 1023 to be one class better than that of ports 1024 to 65535, cos they assume that more important traffic is made using the ports 1 to 1023. If u want u can change that to 1-65535.

    2) The ordering of the classification is more important than the class, and has no relation to the actual class. Whatever class is at the top, whether be it Highest or Class E, it will be the most important classification rule than the later ones.
