Traffic Shapper for URL



  • Hello everyone.

    I'm new in pfsense and facing a challenge to set up a traffic shapper based on URL.
    Is it possible in PfSense?

    My needs it;
    I have 24 pcs and I'd like to priorize band limit for a specific URL.

    Like, when someone try to get "forum.pfsense.org, the traffic to this site need to be priorized

    I have 1 internet link.

    Some one can help me?



  • interesting you ask this as i have the same requirement also.

    it'd be nice if some of the pfsense guys can answer this?

    It's not possible to do in any meaningful way.

    Using a hostname is possible in an alias, but for most large web sites, the IPs returned by DNS change often or are randomized. So the firewall would be tracking one IP thinking it's that site, when really it's another one entirely.

    It may be possible with squid, but I don't know for sure. Someone else may know better on that part.
