vpn traffic & QoS

    Hi all,
    I'm currently classifying openvpn traffic in my QoS setting using port information (TUN/UDP).
    That works well when I need to distinguish between vpn traffic and others.

    I was wondering though... is there any way to prioritise traffic within the openvpn tunnel? Even something basic like source/destination IP would help

    My specific problem is: I cap VPN throughput during the day as I have a "constant" rsync process backing up data. That capping works well because it doesn't bother other services such as internet browsing for example but is not effective in case I want to administer the remote nas, reached via vpn, either via http/s or ssh.

    I though about using the rsync throttling built in feature but it doesn't scale in my scenario and I really to control this on the gateway instead opening/closing the tap at specific times of the day.

    In Cisco world there's a qos pre-classify command that does the job...

    Any input?
