Re: 2.4 Release Bridge mode traffic shaper Problem



  • If you have Bridge mode and are using traffic shaper, then don't upgrade to 2.4!
    2.4 does not support traffic shaper in bridge mode. After upgrade internet connection (where bridge is) does not work. Neither does reserve internet connection (without bridge).

    Have you had any any success in circumventing this somehow?

    Only thing I can think of is get rid of bridge and only use NAT, but unfortunately that is not an option in this case.

    Have to get back to previous releases. Is there any place where to download previous releases?
    I only found 2.4.0 release and up from download site.



  • Like you say the problem is bridge+trafficshaper. And you can think of removing the bridge, but don't want to. Have you thought also about removing the traffic shaping? Maybe limiters can work for you.?.



  • Taffic shaping on a bridge interface hasn't worked right even in 2.3 see: https://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/4405



  • So how does traffic shaping work for ipv6 traffic then? its practically bridge, right?

    Don't know how to use limiters when there are some bridge users that need as much bandwidth as possible per 24h but at the same time I need to give multiple NAT users proper bandwidth when they are occasionally using internet. traffic shaper has been working excellent for us giving everyone their fare share. I really don't like bridge myself at all but some users just need that. period.

    Anyway, this obviously needs a complete new approach and lot of testing and developing before we can introduce 2.4 to our sites. very frustrating.
    so for the time being have to get back to previous releases. Is there any place where to download previous releases?
    I only found 2.4.0 release and up from download site.
