There was a similar question asked back in 2008 about prioritizing traffic on a Cisco router.
While my situation is very similar to the other question asked, I am curious how to prioritize traffic based on the IP address.
We have a library management system traffic from various library branches to my central branch. The library management system traffic is client/server based and consists of bursts of data to a specific set of IP addresses. How can I configure the routers to give absolute priority to traffic based on the IP address of our servers?
I am trying to setup the router so that data from three IP addresses will have priority when being sent out to the clients.
I think that I will need to create a standard access list with the IP addresses of our library management systems, but I am not sure about to best way to get this accomplished.
