    it doens't work correctly when i tested downloading by using bitcomet it doesn't download anything.
    it seem PFsense blocked it.

    Thank in for any idea to guide me
    sorry for my English

  • Limiters are assigned using firewall rules via the In/Out section under Advanced features.  Bittorrent can be very hard to trace because the torrent clients these days use encryption and that can't be handled by a layer7 rule.  You might be better off using an opposite approach where you elevate known traffic like web and mail, and all others can be limited or shaped.
