August 26, 2009 Leave a comment

Likewise has a really impressive free product that lets Linux and OSX users integrate into an Active Directory environment very easily. In fact with linux I think it’s easier than with Windows!

In ubuntu you can install the likewise-open-gui package. For OSX you can download the installer package from the website and follow the 10 minute setup guide.

IPCOP traffic shaping for simple, effective qos

August 4, 2009 Leave a comment

Using the default traffic shaper works really well for simple qos needs. Set your defined rtp ports (e.g. udp 3000 and 3001) and udp 5060 and udp 4569 as high priority. Add any offending traffic (e.g. gotomeeting at udp 8200) as low or medium. Takes about 5 minutes and works like a charm!
