Block LAN-Host completly (traffic)



  • Hi,

    I am completly new to pfsense and read the documentation for traffic shaping but I did not find an answer to my question:

    Is it possible to block a host completly when a specified traffic limit is reached for this host?

    For example: I have host1, host2 and host3 in my LAN. host1 consumed 1TB Traffic within 30 days. I want to block this host completly out (and create a mail informing me about this action).

    Thanks in advance

    No. There isn't any long-term usage tracking that would work in that way. Not with a normal network anyhow. If it were Captive Portal-controlled and with access authenticated by RADIUS, with RADIUS set to track usage and deny access, that might work. I believe there are examples of this elsewhere here on the forum if you search a bit for terms like "captive portal radius bandwidth" you might turn up some relevant hits.
