Summary

In this chapter we have covered caching and traffic shaping with IPCop and how to configure these. This can be useful on even the smallest of networks, as we prioritize service access, allowing users on the network to be guaranteed the best possible service for any critical services in use. The options for doing so in IPCop are quite basic, and we are limited in the control we have. We have seen, however, that it is possible to make an impact on services in order to improve our bandwidth utilization.
