The Cable Guy QoS Support in Windows
Policy-based QoS settings in Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista allow you to prioritize or manage the sending rate for outgoing traffic based on the following conditions:
- Sending application (executable path and name)
- Source or destination IPv4 or IPv6 addresses or address prefixes
- Protocol (TCP, UDP, or both)
- Source or destination ports or port ranges (TCP or UDP)
