Traffic Limiters not working on NAT rules in 2.5.0?
Posted this on reddit but thought it should be better posted here so Netgate devs can see it:
I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this issue where setting a traffic limit on a NAT rule causes traffic to drop? I'm trying to set a limiter on my reverse proxy NAT rule but when setting a limiter it appears that traffic isn't making it through. Removing the limiter and it works correctly. I think it's similar to this bug that was solved 4 years ago - https://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/4326
how to replicate:
- create a port forward rule on pfSense.
- create traffic limiters (i've tried different algorithms).
- set traffic limiter to IN/Out NAT rule on WAN.
- Try to access remotely (e.g. mobile phone on mobile data).
The reason i'm trying to do this and have done so in the past is because I host a few services such as Plex that go through a reverse proxy for family but I want to limit it so they don't max out my upload speed (only 10Mbps upload unfortunately). This has worked in the past but since the 2.5.0 update it hasn't.
