I've done some research on posts (non fortinet forums) that list the DSCP bits coming from comcast to the local modem/installation as the lowest priority (0x08) and that to fix this I've typically seen commands to make iptables essentially convert those dscp bits to 0x00 to unclassify the incoming traffic and process it without that interference.
Has anyone ever implemented this with FortiGate, if they are even affected?
I unfortunately do not have a unit and an open comcast connection to play around with.
This is the command I've seen recommended to implement, if it helps:
Will if the L3 header is set for DSCP, they should be zero'd upon arrived and any cisco switch ( for example ) will zero out the dscp also, unless the port is "trusted". The same for juniper EX, and I would expect a host of others.
what value are you seeing w/DCSP ( hex 0x08 )?
have you dump the packets on the egress interface into your cust_LAN for example? and if yes, what do you see?
