Limiter on WAN rule
I have a WAN rule that is part of a NAT redirect. The rule basically allows TCP 7001 to an internal IP address. I have someone using it to access some files, but at the same rate I don't want them saturating my upstream pipe (it's not that big.) So I created two limiters at 500Kb each and applied them in each direction for the rule. But when I do this the rule allowing access via that NAT is then not followed by PfSense. If I remove the rate limiters from the rule (e.g. setting it to none) then the rule works again.
Why I do the same thing to a rule on the LAN, it seems to work just fine.
Did I miss something and Limiters are not allowed on WAN interfaces or could I possibly have done something wrong? Normally I just apply a limited to a firewall rule and then it applies to that rule and uses the limiter as a queue depending on how it is masked in the limiter setup. Right now it is set to 0.0.0.0 which should be anything. Thanks!
thanks! Seems like this has been going on for a while too. Sad.
I found the same issue could be replicated if I setup an in/out queue for the interface. As soon as it filled no new traffic was passed from the WAN to the LAN.
FYI- This is no longer a problem on 2.4.
