    I am going through testing on offline files.
    An issue I am trying to get my head around is how to limit the
    bandwidth of the background sync so that it doesn't saturate a slow
    wan link, but i still want it to sync back to the source. The
    saturation is expected to be heavy on initial role out of windows 7.

    offline files sync uses port 445 so i cant really QoS it. I have gone
    through the GPO and cant see a way to limit the bandwidth.

    I am hoping for a solution that does not include a third party

    Any ideas?

    Looking around Windows 8 and Server 2012, I don't see any new options.

    Has anybody solved this problem (of segregating outbound-from-the-server SMB traffic by type, putting Offline Files in a lower tier)? Like Roy, I don't see any way to discriminate on the server side.
