I am configuring a small network and my idea is to use a linux server as a proxy it will be serving local services to the clients and it will have also a squid server as a caching server for speeding up the network.

Web traffic is important and the mail, etc. The faster the better. But during VoIP conversations bad quality will be result in a bad conversation. I would like to set up a total priority to VoIP connections. My main target no VoIP conversation with low quality because a lack of bandwidth.

Thank you very much, I really appreciate your help.

there are some ready-made scripts like this one and few linked in the references that you can try.
