How to create a QOS rule for an IP or Specific Port

QOS Custom Rule for an IP - 

First create a bypass rule for the device in question.  To do this navigate to Config->System->Bypass Rules and click the Add button.  Give the rule a description that is helpful in identifying what device is being bypassed.  In this example we are bypassing an internal email server at 192.168.1.10 so we named the rule Email Server Bypass.  Now click the Add button and then select the Source Address is option and then enter the IP of the device in question.

Now that the device in question is bypassed we can set up custom QOS rules for the device.  To do this we navigate to Config->Network->Advanced->QOS and then click on the Add button found in the QOS Custom Rules section of this page. Give the rule a description that is helpful in identifying what device is being given a new QOS priority.  Now click the Add button and then select the Source Address is option and then enter the LANIP of the device we just created the Bypass Rule for.  Now select the Priority you would like to give the device in question.
