Limit a 1 IP on Lan not the Rest.
Version 2.1.4-RELEASE (i386)
My brother-in-law is staying with me, and i have asked him to stop downloading torrents because he is eating up my bandwidth when I am Home.
But he dosent listen to me and keeps doing it.
So i want to limit his access to the internet.
I have 8Mb/s down and 3Mb/s up
I run Static IP address on pfsense, his ip is ..1.103 wired and ..1.113 wireless
I set a limiter for him at 500Kb/s down and up.
I created a rule for each of his Static IP's to point to the limiter and protocol set to any.
but i dont get 500Kb/s i get more like 51Kb/s and a high latency.
I pinged google from his laptop and the ping latency was over 1000ms
I want him to be able to surf the web just fine but limit the downloads. I thought that 500Kb/s was good enough but the latency is killing me.
Any Help would be greatly excepted, and i am new to pfsense, i used monowall in the past.
I am trying to avoid getting a letter from my ISP about to much downloading.

Are you sure you're not confusing bits and bytes? I set up a 500Kb/s limiter and was getting ~45-65KB/s as expected. See my traffic graph and note how the traffic floats right around 500 Kb/s, with the one spike from my other VM on the same network. My pings to Google were around 15ms so I don't know what's going on there. How do you have your rule setup? Where is it in your rule list?
I have the rule setup on the lan side. With a single host which is his ip and at the bottom theres a choice for a limiter and i added the inbound and outbound limiter.
At the top of the list.
When i get a chance today ill take some screen shots.
