Sure, removing t110 and t25 from SHAPER_BULKDATA_PORTS will give them the default queue with is a little higher priority.  SHAPER_STREAMINGMEDIA_PORTS is the highest priority, SHAPER_INTERACTIVE_PORTS is the next highest.

You might try increasing UPLINK closer to your 64 limit.

Also, you might try setting SHAPER_TYPE=hfsc (stop the firewall before, make that change, start the firewall)

As far as I2P, I would treat that like VPN traffic, which would be SHAPER_INTERACTIVE_PORTS, but default (not specified) or SHAPER_BULKDATA_PORTS would be options as well.


PS: Arno recently included (1.9.2k-DEVEL) a traffic shaper update with two more queues and complete DSCP mapping, amount other things.
