[ASK] Distribute bandwidth evenly to each client
Hi, i want to ask.. i'm very new to PFsense
1. Is it possible to distribute bandwidth evenly to each client who is online? for example: 1 have 1 mbps internet connection, 2 online client, then the bandwidth is distributed 512 kbps to each client.. At another time, i have 4 clients online, can PFsense adjust the bandwidth automatically so that now each client receive 256 kbps internet connection?
In pfSense 1.2 shaper not supported per-user bandwidth. This maybe in 1.3
But, if you need per-user bandwidth only for WEB(http) - use squid proxy with traffic managment.
Well, Is it possible to rate the client's internet connection by priority?
You can have rules for each individual IP on your LAN to assign them to queues with 1-7 prio. This isn't clean, nor scalable, but it works (if you have static IPs on LAN).
You can use this method only for a few IPs that need high prio, or only for a few IPs (or a subnet) that needs to be penalized (ie: default traffic => 3, penalty queue => 1).
What about a bit different goal?
I have a 1MBps channel and 2 clients.
When only 1 client's computer is turned on (and he wants to use internet),
he should get all 1MBps .
When 2 computers are on, each of them sould get 512kBps.
Is it possible?
That's the thing i want to ask….
I think its possible in new traffic shaper by ermal. Am I right ermal?
The solution should exist, maybe not direct solution.
If these clients connect to pfsense using it's VPN server,
it is a way to determine, whether they want to use internet -
are they logged on the VPN or not logged on.
If I could create a web configuration user with limited rights
(only to change the speed limit),
one of these clients could change it.
Let clients them solve their problems by themselves. :-)
