Srcds poor performance with pf
so i have just switched out my dlink dir 655 router with a pfSense server.
The server spesefications is:
CPU: Intel P4 2.8ghz
Mem: 512 mb
network: Realtek 100mbit, and 3Com 100mbit
This configuration is holding up my home network and my three servers.
As a hobby i host Counter-Strike Source servers which all are very populare.
The problem is that i cant get them to run as smooth as with the dlink router… which is really sad since i really like pfsense.
Anyone has any fine tunings advice?
For gaming, using static ports is recommended. You enable Advanced Outbound NAT to do this, do a search if you are unfamiliar with AON.
Yes, i have done that;) it fixed some seriouse lag issues, but some players are still complaining about lag…
If lag is an issue, then setup Traffic Shaping and allow your Counter Strike Server's IP and the CS ports to have a higher priority.
hmm, when i setup traffic shaping and reboot the pfsense box, i do not get to visit any webpages and connect to other servers… Have i done something wrong?:P
i just followed the wizard...
Havent used the Traffic Shaper Wizard in a while, but I remember seeing an error like this on the forum. Are you using a recent snapshot?
i use 1.2.3, no updates what so ever other than RCs and Betas
Can you verify if your nic's support ALTQ?
The Realtek and 3com should be supported under ALTQ.
@TS: Can you verify that the default allow any LAN NAT rule is in place?
