    Setting ToS/Diffserv byte?

    I found some sample code on setting the ToS byte of an IP packet that you are sending out in C#, but can't seem to get it to work. What I have is very simple:

    Code:
    public static void Main(string[] args)
            {
                Console.WriteLine("Testing DSCP packet marking.Wireshark should already be running!\n");
    
                UdpClient cli = new UdpClient();
                //TcpClient cli = new TcpClient();
                cli.Client.SetSocketOption(SocketOptionLevel.IP,
                                           SocketOptionName.TypeOfService, 136);
    
                byte[] buf = new byte[16];
    
                //I fill buff here            
                
                cli.Connect("192.168.4.100", 10100);
                cli.Send(buf, buf.Length);
                /*NetworkStream mystream = cli.GetStream();
                if (mystream != null)
                {
                    mystream.Write(buf, 0, buf.Length);
                }
                if(cli.Connected)
                    cli.Close();*/
            }
    As you can see, I've tried this with both TCP and UDP. But when I view the traffic that gets sent out in wireshark, the diffserve byte is always 0. I can see that the payload is filled with what I set buf too, so I know I'm looking at my packet. Am I missing something?

    have you tried to capture the same packet on the receivers side?
    The first 90% of a project takes 90% of the time,
    the last 10% takes the other 90% of the time.

    Yes. According to Wireshark, it's still 0.

    I have tested your code...
    send packet from comp 192.168.2.8 to 192.168.2.10

    wireshark on 192.168.2.8 shows (as I have suspected) 0 in the DSF field both when SetSockOption is called and not...

    but on the 192.168.2.10 it is changed from 0 to 0x88 as it should be...

    (Sender compiled on Ubuntu using monodevelop)

    So the code has no problems - do your testing again... If it still failes - Sunday I can test the sender code on Windows XP

    BTW - using ping with -v switch on widows or -Q switch on ubuntu to set teh TOS does nothing for me...

    I didn't realize Ubuntu could run .NET code. But I'm sending from Windows 7 with no luck.

    could be some shortcomings of Win7 - have you tried to run your program in XP mode?
