Limiter On Wan Interface



  • How to create  a limiter rule on my wan interface to specific external host ?

    Thanks.



  • Create your limiter. Create a WAN firewall rule to catch the designated traffic and at the botton of the firewall rule  page, select your limiters.



  • Thanks man, i create rule and limiter, but not work.



  • Other information is, this traffic is generated from proxy.

    You need to set the limiter on the rule where the connection/state is established.

    This is probably easiest done on LAN.

    If this is for inbound connections, it is probably easiest done on the firewall rule on WAN that permits the inbound connection.

    Another possibility might be a floating match rule on WAN out.  Note that this reverses the direction of the In/Out queues.

    At least I think.  I've never set a limiter on a specific outside address.



  • thanks for suggestions, i will test this solutions…

    I didn't see the post about the proxy. If you want to limit traffic to/from specific outside IP addresses I think your only choice is a floating match rule on WAN out to catch the connections being made to those addresses and setting the limiters.

    In/out will correspond to Upload/Download I think.

    I think I have had 3 or 4 distinct times where I thought I had a good grasp of limiters, but each time the level of confusion grows in a brand-new exciting way. Networking kryptonite or something.
