    routing based on traffic type


    Hi all,

    I have a linux box which I need to configure as a router. If it receives network traffic as VOIP packets and data packets, can the box distinguish between the packets and route the packet to two different networks ? I am a newbie at this.
    Please help. Appreciate if you can answer my query.

    iptables should be able to do this for you. I haven't used it to route VOIP before, but you should be able for forward traffic to an appropriate network. There are plenty of doco's out there for this.

    You may need to do deep packet inspection if VOIP doesn't use standard ports, but this is apparently available if you recompile iptables as well.

    Here might be a starting point:
