Priority for RDP VPN traffic with a Sonicwall?

Is it possible to prioritize RDP traffic over the VPN over all other traffic?  We are using TZ190's for the remote sites and a 2040 at the data center.  Thanks.

Yes and No.

By using QOS you can get RDP traffic to "leave" the TZ before other traffic that is queued up to go to the Internet, but once the traffic hits the Internet all QOS settings are ignored.  So if the problem is congestion in the Internet, or even not enough Internet bandwidth at either or both sites, using QOS could have minimal effect.

Thanks for the reply.  Yes I understand that once it leaves our network we can't control QOS.  It's just that we have a max upload and I want to give priority to RDP traffic traveling over the VPN over everything else.  How would I go about this in the Sonicwall?

Although it is a bit dated, this should get you through it.

One last question.  How about BWM?  These sites are connected with site to site VPN's...should I be looking at just using QoS?

The document I referenced covers both BWM and QOS.  I would suggest implementing both.  QOS is only part of the picture.
