How to prioritize one client specific
I'm quite new on traffic shaping and wanted to ask you something:
With my current Internet Line (1 Gbit/s Downspeed - 50 Mbit/s Upspeed) I got everytime an issue when I'm backing up my NAS to my cloud. Since it's multiple Terabyte sometimes the Upload is way longer then a night and I want to use as much bandwith and time as I can. My problem is now: Everytime I'm hitting the full upload speed, the whole Internet is laggy (ofc, the ack packages can't be there fast enough) which means my wife is angry that she can't surf in the internet as she used to be and for me gaming is impossible.
Thats why I thought can it be somehow achieveable to tell pfSense that traffic from this specific client has the lowest priority? Or do I have to go and find out all the Ports that are needed for specific FW Rules. Can then anybody suggest a documentation for it and a how to?
Thanks everyone for the help!
Per https://docs.netgate.com/pfsense/en/latest/trafficshaper/advanced.html#shaper-rule-matching-tips you have to use tagging to prioritize based on the LAN IP of the NAS.
If you know the IPs of the cloud service you could lower the priority based on those, but I would expect those to change over time.
