    How to ping from router with priority?

    jephph New Member

      I have the following access list applied outbound to my ppp interface:

       

      qos map HiPri

      match precedence 6

      match precedence 7

      bandwidth percent 80

       

         I want to be able to send pings from my router to the far end of my point-to-point in such a fashion that the ping packets are treated as "precedence 6" traffic, How can this be accomplished?

          jephph - Probably the easiest way for ping traffic to the far end of your point-to-point to be treated with the same priority as "precedence 6" traffic is to add another match statement to your current QoS map. In this case, you will need to create an ACL that matches ping traffic sourced from your router and destined to the far end of your point-to-point. Then you would add a statement in your QoS map that would match the ACL.

           

          The commands on how to do this is below:

           

          ip access-list extended MatchPing

              permit icmp host <router source IP> host <far-end IP>      <------This ACL will match ping traffic coming from the router and destined for the far-end of your point-to-point

           

          qos map HiPri

              match precedence 6

              match precedence 7

              match list MatchPing     <------ This statement will give the ping traffic the same priority as precedence 6 traffic outbound.

           

          I hope this answers your question, but please do not hesitate to let us know if you have any further questions.
