allows you to change the Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP) marking for
COPS messages that are transmitted or received by the Cisco router. Cisco IOS
Release 12.3(13a)BC supports this function with the
dscp command changes the default IP parameters for
connections between the Cisco router and COPS servers in the cable network.
DSCP values are
used in Quality of Service (QoS) configurations on a Cisco router to summarize
the relationship between DSCP and IP precedence. This command allows COPS to
remark the packets for either incoming or outbound connections.
setting is 0 for outbound connections. On default incoming connections, the
COPS engine takes the DSCP value from the COPS server initiating the TCP
affects all TCP connections with all COPS servers.
dscp command allows the Cisco router to re-mark
the COPS packets for either incoming or outbound connections.
- This command affects all
TCP connections with all COPS servers.
- This command does not
affect existing connections to COPS servers. Once you issue this command, this
function is supported only for new connections after that point in time.
- For messages transmitted
by the Cisco router, the default DSCP value is 0.
- For incoming connections
to the Cisco router, the COPS engine takes the DSCP value used by the COPS
server that initiates the TCP connection, by default.

basic example illustrates the use of this command:

example specifies the COPS server and enables COPS for RSVP on the server. Both
of these functions are accomplished by using the
cops command on the Cisco uBR10012 router. By
implication, the default settings for all remaining COPS for RSVP commands are
Router# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)# ip rsvp policy cops servers 18.104.22.168 22.214.171.124
examples display three views of the COPS for RSVP configuration on the router,
which can be used to verify the COPS for RSVP configuration.
example displays the policy server address, state, keepalives, and policy
Router# show cops servers
COPS SERVER: Address: 126.96.36.199. Port: 3288. State: 0. Keepalive: 120 sec
Number of clients: 1. Number of sessions: 1.
COPS CLIENT: Client type: 1. State: 0.
example displays the policy server address, the ACL ID, and the client/server
Router# show ip rsvp policy cops
COPS/RSVP entry. ACLs: 40 60

example displays the ACL ID numbers and the status for each ACL ID:
Router# show ip rsvp policy
