Bandwidth limiter for a website


  • I would like to limit bandwidth only when I visit a particular and specific website.
    Is it possibile to do?


  • When you say "limit my bandwidth when I visit a specific site", you mean "limit my bandwidth to a specific site"?

    I try to explain. For example I would create difficulties to visit www.xxx.com without block it yet.

    Create an alias.  Use the fqdn www.xxx.com (and maybe xxx.com)  in the host field.  This will create a self-updating alias for the IP addresses of that site.

    Above your normal LAN pass rules, create a pass rule for destination that alias and put whatever limiters you like on the rule.


  • Hi all, I'm trying to make this process but failed when navigating to the URL, do so at the selected speed.

    Help me please.

    How are your limiters configured?  You can see what pfSense thinks of your alias in Diagnostics > Tables.  I sort of doubt simply www.facebook.com is going to get you there.  I know I have to allow scripting from akamai to get facebook to work so there's at least one more domain they have you pull from.


  • What's going on? I wish to prioritize pages banks to navigate with a 2Mb limiter and other sites like facebook or a 100Kb limiter to navigate. I can lock the page by the "Proxy Filter", but I want to know if I can do this limitation of speed.
    I am sailing on the client proxy, I limiters; but do not work. But when I remove the proxy client limiters work great … and obviously the Proxy filter stops working.
    Suggestions?
