Pfsense error The command '/sbin/ipfw pipe 66392 config bw 10240Kbit/s queue 10



  • Hi All,

    We got the problem in system log and the access to internet is getting slow.

    php[40714]: /index.php: The command '/sbin/ipfw pipe 66392 config bw 10240Kbit/s queue 100' returned exit code '1', the output was 'ipfw: setsockopt(IP_DUMMYNET_CONFIGURE): Invalid argument'

    Any advise how to solve the problem?



  • it look like u have a config problem on limiter or Layer 7  ? from what i can tell

    We dont configure traffic sharper but we use captive portal to limit bandwidth every users 10240Kbit/s.



  • how try a smaller Kb size and see if that helps. you mind if i ask u how many users are u trying to limit i don't use captive portal at all to limit same with traffic shaper i use the limiter and that works well for i limit ever users on my network if need be as well some services and servers, u should try the limiter and see if that works out better for you.

    Thank for your reply, peak time around 900 concurrent and the average it's about 400. It seems hard to understand about traffic shapper in pfsense. Would you mind to advise, what step i should to, i would like to
    1.limit bandwidth every pcs in my LAN to 10Mbps to some destination (x.x.x.x)
    2.limit bandwidth every pcs in my LAN to 128kbps to all destination beside (x.x.x.x)

    Appreciated if you can advise
