Limit bandwidth per user or Share bandwidth evenly?
I was reading through the docs over at opnsense and came across how to setup traffic shaping
Instructions for limiting bandwidth per user so that each user will recieve a maximum of say 5Mbps
Instructions for sharing the set bandwidth evenly between all users.
Can any of theese two be setup in pfsense and if so, how?

You do it the exact same way: limiters.
That link tells me how limiters work, however no instructions for either of the two in my previous post.
So over to the opnsense link again. the instructions for "Limit bandwidth per user" is as follows:
Step 1 - Create Upload and Download Pipes
Create Pipe For Download
Step 2 - Create Rules
Good instructions by opnsense here so lets translate this over to pfsense.
- should mask be "destination" for download and "source" for upload?
- sequence: 21 where do i put this or is it even needed?
- proto: ip ip does not exist under protocol in pfsense so what to choose instead?

I'm not really interested in looking at or translating OpnSense documentation. If you don't understand the docs, you can search for how to do it or perhaps someone else can explain it all. I don't use limiters myself.
Here is a good link that shows various scenarios about limiters and pfSense:
What what possible reason are you asking about this here?
You do understand that is not pfsense right.. If you have questions on how to use that software or their documentation you should ask on their forums.

@johnpoz He is, John. He's asking how to do something in pfSense that he already knows how to do with OpnSense.
@p38016 OpnSense is kind of a dirty word around here. There were some issues between Netgate and the main OpnSense guy.
@KOM Thanks for the reddit link very informative.
best explication ever
