IPV6 QOS question

    I am using a Hurricane Electric 6in4 tunnel. I noticed the YouTube IPV6 video is not being classified as media but instead P2P/Bulk (unclassified is suspect).
    After forcing my windows 7 machine to prefer IPV4 and viewing the same videos, The IPV4 traffic is being classified as media.
    Is IPV6 QOS supposed to function? Could the tunnel be the problem?

    Youtube is most effectively classified by the L7 filter made by Porter. L7 filters, AFAIK, use iptables and not ip6tables, which may explain the problem.

    Thanks, Maybe a future update will include L7 for IPV6.

    Adding this ip range

    Code:
    2a00:1450::/29
    in a Media class QoS rule with TCP destination port 80 and maybe a transfer rate will help. I'm in Europe so this ip range is not guaranteed for you.

    argh1701:
    The problem is what the router sees. I'm an IPv6-noob but I looked around a bit. It seems like with your setup you get a new network interface called "henet". I'm quite sure that you need ip6tables rules to match any traffic on there.

    There might be another problem for QoS: Because of the tunneling your ppp0-interface will only see the tunnel and not the different traffic types, so shaping within the tunnel by using normal QoS-system is impossible. You could only define a certain amount of bandwidth for your tunnel in the normal QoS-setup and then you would have to use handmade QoS-rules to match your traffic _and_ shape it (two different things, one uses ip6tables, the other tc).
