Sharing internet fairly



  • guys i am using the latest pfsense on a 64bit machine, i am more skilled on mikrotik. I am wondering how do i share internet fairly on an interface?,eg if the set max seed is 4mbps, when one user is connected he will get the whole bandwidth and if 4 users are connected they will share fairly.

    You need to define what you mean by "fair" since there are multiple definitions.

    I'm going to assume you want bandwidth split evenly among the active IPs, which means you probably want to use limiters: https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=63531.msg364520#msg364520
    You could instead use queues but it would be more complex since you would need to create a bunch of queues for the separate IPs.
