Prioritizing UDP socket RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am monitoring network connection between two win7 PCs with periodic keep-alive messages. According to my monitoring calculation result another process will use another socket to send data between PCs. I need to give my socket priority above normal.

    I searched the web to understrand how to do so and I'm quite confused.

    Some sites mentioned setting TypeOfService value in the SetSocketOption method. But then I saw that this method is no longer supported and is silently ignored.

    Other sites introduced QoS, QoS2 and DSCP which is for C/C++ developers, but again it was mentioned as deprecated API.

    Can someone please help me understand the subject or refer me to relevent information from the near past (all the articles I found were from dates before 2009).

    Thanks for your help,
