DESCRIPTION

The classify helper command puts matching traffic into the specified traffic shaping class.
The class is a class as used by iptables(8) and tc(8) (e.g. MAJOR:MINOR).
The rule-params define a set of rule parameters to match the traffic that is to be classified. See firehol-params(5) for more details.
Any classify commands will affect all traffic matched. They must be declared before the first router or interface.
