Hi gxp071,

Server 2003 is capable of handling QoS.
Info on what you get can be found at : http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/WindowsServ/2003/all/techref/en-us/Default.asp?url=/Resources/Documentation/windowsserv/2003/all/techref/en-us/w2k3tr_qos_what.asp

Info on how it works can be found at : http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/WindowsServ/2003/all/techref/en-us/Default.asp?url=/Resources/Documentation/windowsserv/2003/all/techref/en-us/w2k3tr_qos_how.asp

Info on how to administrate it can be found at : http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/WindowsServ/2003/all/techref/en-us/Default.asp?url=/Resources/Documentation/windowsserv/2003/all/techref/en-us/w2k3tr_qos_tools.asp

Sorry for posting all the links, but I think it's the most useful at this point.

One thing to bear in mind is that QoS only works if all of the devices in the network path are capable of understanding it and applying it to the traffic.
For example, if one router in the network path can't handle it, you'll not get QoS to work properly.

I hope that this helps.

We are trying to trying to priorities http traffic over all other traffic? Is QOS the best way, if so how. How do I configure QOS?
We have already installed server 2003 resource pack.

If there is another way of achieving http priority, please could you inform me.!

Where on your network do you need the prioritisation to happen?
Do you mean that you want web browsing to take precidence over SMTP mail - or something else?

Can you please describe in a bit more detail what you're trying to achieve?
Based on what you've said so far, it'll be your Internet gateway that needs to do the prioritisation - and that won't be as straightforward as "make downloads twice as fast as email".
