Traffic Shaping + Transparent Bridge + Layer7 + DHCP relay *up to $300 reward!*

  • Hello folks,

    I am a great fan of pfSense. I have been using v1.2 for a couple of years now.

    Recently I have started playing also with v2.0. I've been playing for more than a weeks with pfSense-2.0-ALPHA-ALPHA-512mb-20091019-1122-nanobsd (FBSD-8.0 Branch). I haven't been able to get what I want.

    I am trying to have transparent bridge and traffic shaping working in pfSense 2.0. Preferably the same package would contain DHCP relay to another subnet. Traffic Shaper must facilitate Layer7 capabilities, not blocking P2P, but directing it to qP2P and also handle known games accordingly to qGames.

    I have managed to create a bridge but the traffic is not shaped at all as it does also on v1.2.

    Neither have I been successful in Layer7 filtering in routing nor in bridged mode. I have read carefully all posts here in forum, but the examples shown did not work for me. I don't want to block P2P, my intent is to restrict into minimal queues.

    Neither have I been successful in DHCP relay. There is an error saying something like this: /usr/local/sbin/dhcrelay -i -i vr1 ip.xx.yy.zz - interface vr1 not known host. This seems a bug.

    I've been in contact with one developer using PM, but as he has not been answering for my emails for a while, I have to seek for help here.

    As pfSense is as great product as it is, I'm willing to donate $200 for working config file and detailed guidance how to use it. Config file can be uploaded here in public forum so that the other members can also have it.

    As I am an impatient person, this offer is valid only until end of October.

    And I know the bounty option also. I did not see this as a bounty (such a short time period..), if an operator does not agree with me, this can also be transferred to correct forum.



  • Am I really asking for too much?

    I will add an extra $100 making it $300, if I get answered by October 30th UTC

    (Sorry my English, I'm not quite sure whether this means 30th is included or not, but my intention is to include also Friday  8)).

    Thanks for the note, as it has been very quiet here, I'll give a shot there.
