Limit bandwidth per network



  • Hi,

    Greetings to everyone!

    I'm a newbie user to pfSense & I've lot of questions to be asked. But let me focus on fixing few things at first before I make the system live within my organization. Well, our network set-up is on a /16 network ranging from 10.1.1.1 - 10.1.10.254.

    I would like to limit the bandwidth only for 10.1.10.1 - 254 /16 network range. I tried using the limiter which works perfectly as I've selected source as network assigning the stating IP of the network with /16 notation. Nevertheless, when I tried changing the IP for another network range (e.g.: 10.1.7.50) it still applies the same condition. Assuming that I will need to add another rule to pass over said network (10.1.7.1-254 /16) , I created a rule for that particular network but it didn't help at all.

    P.S.: It works when I assign a rule to a single IP by allowing it on top of the rules, removing the limits under In/Out selection.

    Any ideas how can I achieve this??



  • Hi,

    I'm not getting it.

    10.1.10.1 - 10.1.10.254 is not a /16 network. If you specify 10.1.10.1/16, it will match anything in the 10.1.x.x range.

    The same is true 10.1.7.1/16. Actually, it's exactly the same subnet as 10.1.10.1/16.

    I assume you meant /24?



  • As Klaws said, use /24 for the rule. It doesn't matter that the whole network is /16, you want to apply the rule to that /24 portion only



  • /24 worked like a charm. :)
