Hello,
I have a Checkpoint Firewall that has been "live" for many years.  We now want to use it to manage our bandwidth thru QOS.  I see how to add the package to the existing rulebase, but am wondering what the difference between traditional mode and express mode is, and which one i need.  Can someone point me to where I might find an explanation, and possibly a good tutorial on QOS?

Thanks in advance!

Hiya bud

Dont have my other notes with me to provide a bit more insight to this, however, I have attached the QOS guide for R65.

This will give a but more of an idea as to the dos and donts with QOS.

Make sure you follow the guidelines for the quotas, max and min settings for the bandwidth stuff

Its easy to get confused and unintentionally allocate all bandwidth to wrong service.

Otherwise, the doc is fine for this bud.
