Layer 7 Question HELP

Wed Oct 08, 2008 4:41 pm

Hello everyone,
I use ROS 3.14 on X86, I'd like to know how can I use Layer 7 option to mark, say the packets which belongs to .exe files and change the route for them. I want to change the file download routes to another way, how can I do that setup please help.

THanks With The Best Regards

L7 works with established connections

you cannot change routes for established connections

with ROS, you may split http and non-http traffic

if you want to select different routes based on file extension, you should use dedicated squid server or something
