Traffic shaping by mac address

  • Hi,
    I'm looking for a firewall linux distro, and as far as I see pfsense is good for me. But I haven't found an issue in the docs that pfsense supports or not. I must set bandwith limit to users by their mac address, not ip address. Does Pfsense support traffic shaping by mac address?

  • pfSense is not based linux. It's based on FreeBSD.

    No you cannot shape directly based on MACs.
    However what you can do: create static IP <–> MAC pairings.
    Like this you can make sure that a MAC always has the same IP.
