How to block specific LAN IP access
1. anyway i can check and see what's the specific IP that's sucking up the Bandwidth real time?? like a sniffer?
2. once i am able to 'find' that specific IP, how do i 'block' it in real time?

- Try installing Darkstat or Ntop.
- Create a fw rule on the LAN tab blocking the offending IP.
is there a way that PFSense can alert us when a certain bandwidth is reached?
or send an alert after a set maximum bandwidth is reached and maintained for a certain amount of time?
ssh to pfsense
choose option 9 (pftop)
Press F1, press shift-r
