We host a handful of applications at our datacenter, and as we are growing I'm becoming more and more concerned on how I can control inbound traffic to these applications.  My edge router that connects to the ISP is a Cisco 2851.  I did configure netflow on the router and I do know what type of traffic is coming in.  I'm just not sure how to go about configuring inbound QoS.  I want to make sure my 30Mbps Circuit is performing the absolute best it can.  Is this possible or will I have to look at purchasing something like PacketShaper to do this?  Any assistance would be very helpful.  Thanks.

Do you know what traffic you want to shape?  It's best to start with identifying what IP's and types of traffic you need to control, then see what options your particular router has for incoming traffic control.

Most traffic coming in is on port 81 and port 443.

The 2851 would not be able to control how much traffic comes into it from the outside connection.  Are you seeing congestion from incoming traffic?

We host a lot of different applications at our datacenter.  Our sales team recently sold a customer a hosted solutions for file storage.  Basically they connect to a terminal server and we have windows explorer published out, so they can transfer files to and from their workstation to the hosted environment.  I'm concerned about the bandwidth this will be taking up.  I was trying to come up with a way to control bandwidth.

Sorry for the delay in responding.  What version of IOS is the router running?  )QOS options vary slightly with different IOS versions)  Also, are there any existing QOS statements or ACL's on the router?
