[Samba] QoS to prioritise netlogon traffic over SMB file shares

Exactly what it says in the subject really. Looking for a way to prioritise the netlogon requests on the network above the file share transfers. We have a few desktops that are used for design files and are connected by 1Gbe along with a fleet of WiFi (802.11g generally) enabled laptops. Trying to logon while the desktops are transferring large files can cause some nasty issues.

Thinking about giving the Desktops a dedicated port for their connection, but would also like to be able to QoS prioritise. What ports do all of the samba services run over?
