    After configuring all rules for QoS, do you still need to configure your p2p clients maximum upload and download speeds, or do you just leave them at full speed?

    If you have a DSL-like service, you should always configure your upload speed just in case it saturates your outgoing bandwidth...

    I thought QoS manages outgoing bandwidth. I think you meant to say incoming? ><

    But if I'm already doing QoS why should I cap the p2p applications?

    Example: I configure QoS to give priority to web-browsing + dns and low-priority to uTorrent, which is configured to use my full upload bandwidth. Won't QoS quick-in when I want to browse the web, leaving uTorrent automatically capped?

    What I want to do is, whenever I'm not browsing the web BT gets full speed, whether it's upload or download.

    I have configured uTorrent to use specific outgoing port range so it's easy to classify all its traffic. I use Class A with 50% limit and I have set uTorrent upload bandwidth to unlimited. This works much better than setting 50% of my upload bandwidth in uTorrent and not using QoS. Before using QoS my average ping to my ISP gateway was 2-3 times higher.

    I've read comments that mention that using the net.outgoing_port can cause problems with some trackers. Have you found any complications? Do you use the same port for incoming and outgoing?
