Traffic Limiting not working in 2.2.4



  • Here is what I used … word to word and Once enabled can go to Yahoo.com and all other sites .... tried msn.com and cnn.com and both timed out ...

    How to setup a “fair use” bandwidth limiter for pfSense.  What I mean by “fair use” is as follows.

    If there is only one user downloading, give them the full download speed available
    If another user starts to download, then dynamically throttle the existing user and share the bandwidth approximately 50/50
    As other users join in, throttle all connections to provide equal bandwidth to all users.

    Overview

    This example uses pfSense 2.1

    Create a Download Limiter (a Fake Pipe) (name it something like DownloadLimit)
    Set the total Download Bandwidth such as 10 Mbps, enable it and save
    Create a Child Queue under the Download Limiter and name it something like Queue_OUT
    set the slots to “Destination addresses”, enable it and save
    Creat a Upload Limiter (a Fake Pipe) (name it something like UploadLimit)
    Set the total Upload Bandwidth such as 1 Mbps, enable it and save
    Create a Child Queue under the Upload Limiter and name it something like Queue_IN
    set the slots to “Source address”, enable it and save
    Create a new Firewall Rule under LAN
    Action: Pass
    Protocol: TCP/UDP (or any)
    Source: Lan subnet
    Advanced Features -> In/Out: Queue_IN / Queue_OUT
    Save and activate this rule
    Reload the state table by Diagnostics -> States -> Reset States
    Refresh your browser becuase resetting the states kills all existing connections
    Monitor the Limiters or the Traffic Graph to see the new limits in place
