How to shape equally 3 NIC?



  • Hello
    I want to shape equally 3 NIC, i.e. I want to distribute evenly the bandwidth for the 3 NIC (LAN, OPT1 and OPT2), for all types of traffic and I also want to setup the DNS, HTTP and HTTPS services with the highest priorityThe network we have back home, I mean among us in a small village is in the following figure, all DHCP clients have a P2P DC++ (direct connect) client running on port 2000, which is connected to an internal P2P DC++ (direct connect) server (not accessible from the WWW; i.e. really internal), the only P2P client connected to the WWW is a EMULE server.

    The goals are:
    1-if no one is trying to connect to WWW, then all the bandwidth should be allocated to the EMULE and/or to the DC++.
    2-if no one from the OPT2(PFSENSE1) and OPT3(PFSENSE1) is trying to connect to WWW but if someone from the OPT1(PFSENSE1) ) is trying to connect WWW, then the bandwidth should be allocated to the OPT1(PFSENSE1).
    3- the same has the 2 item but now instead of OPT1 is OPT2 or OPT3.
    4- if someone from the OPT1(PFSENSE1), and the OPT2(PFSENSE1) and OPT3(PFSENSE1) is trying to connect WWW, then the bandwidth should be shared among all.
    5- the DHCP clients on the PFSENSE2 and PFSENSE3 should have the same rights to access the WWW has the PFSENSE1 independently of being far from the gateway.
    6- HTTP, HTTPs DNS, and ACK should have the highest priority.
    7- I don’t want to assign static bandwidth limits (besides from the maximum the gateway can support) for each client and/or NIC, I want the limits to be dynamic allocated in order to have the full bandwidth of the gateway always used without compromising the HTTP service.

    I didn’t found any good tutorial on how to do it for several NICs, therefore what I want is some guidelines, some tips or even some tricks in order to accomplish this requirements.

    Thankyou

  • This is a FAQ.  pfSense only supports shaping of 2 nics currently (LAN + WAN or LAN + OPT WAN).

    This is a FAQ.  pfSense only supports shaping of 2 nics currently (LAN + WAN or LAN + OPT WAN).

    If both the OPT1, OPT2 and OPT3 are bridged with the LAN then the LAN+WAN shaping will work?



  • Traffic shaping does not work with bridging currently.
