I'm running miniupnpd on a FreeBSD 8.1 system acting as a firewall/router/gateway. The issue is that I have two very different classes of service that use UPnP: gaming devices and bulk download applications. I can enumerate which devices are which on my network though, so an ability to set a "default" queue in miniupnpd.conf, plus the ability to set host specific queues would be terrific.

So instead of the current "queue=wan_p2pq" setting in miniupnpd.conf, I might have the following section:
Code:
default_queue=wan_defq
host_queue=192.168.1.30,wan_p2pq

Perhaps it would be useful to include packet tagging support as well, since many policy based traffic shaping techniques use packet tagging for classification.

Do you think this would be possible to implement? Unfortunately, I don't have the C talent to write and provide a patch. However, I have to believe I'm not the only person who would love to see this functionality in miniupnpd.

I think it is possible to implement Smile I'll try to do this when I'll have enough time !
