How do I put Route traffic from one Program



  • I want to have it so that when I run a certain program(on another computer), pfsense routes its traffic differently.  In every other case I want it to route traffic of that computer the normal way.  How would I go about accomplishing this?



  • We need a lot more information.

    Have you tried searching for an answer?



  • I am not entirely sure what to search for and my current search results aren't giving me anything fruitful.  My current thought is to look how traffic prioritization works and see if I can find an answer in there.  What kind of information did you mean.

    Look up firewall rules first. You need to have a firewall rule that catches the traffic before you can begin shaping/policing the traffic. The traffic must differ from other traffic in some way that the firewall can catch.

    For example, if your "certain program" connects to arbitrary hosts/IPs on common ports and uses encryption, it may not be possible to isolate it's traffic.

    Regarding what information you/we could find useful; protocol (UDP/TCP), source IP/port, destination IP/port, name of application, whether encryption is used.
