Thanks steve.  It looks like doing thing based on port should work
fairly easily, but delving further into ICA is intriguing.  I'll post
whatever results we come up with.

Hi Brian,=3D20

I have not seen that particular project, but in general this kind of
functionality on UNIX/LINUX should be easy to configure since you should
=3D be able to define a high level service by port, i.e. assign the
priority =3D for a service you define call ICA on port 1494, etc.
However, if you go want =3D or need to go deeper, there are flags in the
ICA protocol that can be identified. I saw a detail breakdown of this
years ago from Citrix, but =3D I don't know what they currently are
publishing. There must be some info =3D from Citrix on what Tags an ICA
packet....

I was wondering if anyone was using LARTC on Linux for Citrix traffic
shaping in a production environment?  I have a customer who can't afford
=3D a packeteer but needs traffic shaping on their network, their in =
house
=3D linux person has suggested LARTC and a brief review of the lartc.org
web site makes it seem very possible.  A few googles however turned up
only a few references to ICA traffic in conjunction with LARTC.  I am
wondering if =3D it would be more difficult to configure than it looks -
also if anyone out there is using it, I'd like to here how it is
functioning for you and =3D how you have classified the traffic.

Thanks,
