1) Queue trees can only be assigned to interface parents; and global-in/out. I took that to mean that that's where the shaping logic comes into play. Yes/no? yesss. and you may shape traffic twice inside one router, see http://mum.mikrotik.com/presentations/CZ09/QoS_Megis.pdf Um, I have. I linked i...

What is the recommended way of shaping traffic with queue trees when the outbound interface is not static? If I'm understanding the flows correctly, there's no way to use queue trees to shape upstream and downstream communication to different rates without doing so at the outbound interface for each...
