I've used ipfw and Dummynet as well as ipfw + DSCP recognition patch and

box using jails and vimages.
Does any FreeBSD branch / vimage release combination support separate pf
AND ipfw configurations per jail? I need ipfw+pf/altq for HFSC queuing
to simulate the queueing effects of MPLS provider edge and core
-current (9) should be close, with patches for pf supplied by ceri.

8 can do separate ipfw but pf is not changed.
9 has bugs fixed. but I'm not sure if the changes for pf went in..
they do exis tif they are not in already.
No, pf hasn't gone in yet; it lives in user/eri/pf45/ in svn and I am
not sure what the plans are.
Apart from the latest changes 8 and 9 should be pretty much in sync
wrt to VIMAGE I think.
I'm hoping the latest 7.2-STABLE-201001 snapshot will work. The DSCP
recognition patch for ipfw that I rely on doesn't seem to work with
If 7.2 won't work for my needs, but 8 or 9-CURRENT will, is anyone aware
of an updated ipfw DSCP patch? I haven't seen anything on Google or the
freebsd-ipfw mailing list.
what is DSCP?
I guess Differentiated Services CodePoint (if talking MPLS).
