Hi all,

        I want to implement Sally Floyd's Model of link sharing [1] wherein I

(CBQ model). For eg : 50% for video 20% for telnet 30% for ftp.

        Since link sharing is done at IP layer using iproute2-tc is it
possible to distinguish between telnet and ftp traffic. If yes, how do I do it.
I am not sure whether it can be done using iproute2-tc. Any other solutions are
