Dual WAN setup => torrent via only 1 WAN



  • Right now i have a dual WAN setup:

    • Belgacom : 25mbit down, 3.5mbit up, 100GB/month
    • Dommel : 30mbit down, 4.5mbit up, unlimited traffic

    I know that some of the current users of my network download torrent files.  I don't care about it, but it would be nice if they only do that using the Dommel gateway, instead of the Belgacom gateway (is limited at 100GB/month).  I've got it already working for newsservers, but with torrents they can choose the port like they want, so i can't set up a fixed rule i suppose?



  • Force them to use upnp and make sure the unlimited gateway is the default one.
    It will follow that one.
    Its a not supported hack but should make what you want.

    Hi Ermal!
    The unlimited gateway is the default one right now (system > routing) and most of the torrent traffic goes to that one.  But not all of it.  I think they use upnp, but i'm not sure at all.  The only thing i know is that one of the users use utorrent as torrentsoftware.  i'll take a look at it tomorrow for more information.



  • You can create a firewall rule in which you route all traffic with destination port NOT 80 (and other ports you would like to use Load Balancing). So all traffic, which you do not explicit route over Load Balancing will be routet over your specified gateway.

    Instead of routing the many different torrent ports over one gateway, try to create a rule for ports you exactly know and want to be routed over multi-wan and all others will be routed over your "Dommel" gateway.

    I hope my explanation becomes clear !?



  • Great tip, i'll try it tonight :)



  • And everything work great!  Thanks!
