IP TOS in Linux


Hello everyone,

I am developing a Java application that sets the TOS bit of the IP packet. Given that the JVM supports it, does Linux support it natively (kernel 2.4) or do I have to tweak the kernel before I get to use TOS bits on the application layer?

Thanks.

Natively ofcourse, Linux is a *networked OS*.
IIRC tho higher levels benefit from it, (soft) QOS is OSI layer 4 (transport), not 7 (application) tho.

Yes, it is on the transport layer but I am more concerned about the application layer's interface to these. Applications can set the QOS parameters of the underlying network. I am curious if Linux uses it by default or do I have to configure it to do it.
