Limit All Incoming/Outgoing to Same Limit



  • I just purchased a PFSense firewall and have it running. I would like to limit all traffic going in/out of my network to say 20MB/sec for the total traffic combined. I'm not caring to limit a certain IP address but would rather look to have 20MB at one time useable by anyone. I added a rate limit but it doesn't seem to be really be working. What would be the best method to rate limit for my needs?

    I tried to add this queue to my WAN interface but it still seems to allow me to go over 20Mbps.

    QUEUE                BW SCH  PRI    PKTS  BYTES  DROP_P  DROP_B QLEN BORROW SUSPEN  P/S  B/S
    root_igb0          20M cbq    0  18020 1374804        0        0    0      0      0    2  349
    Internet          20M cbq        18020 1374804        0        0    0      0      0    2  349

    Thanks in advance.



  • 2 queues, 1 lan (download), 1 wan (upload). Set both to 20Mbit.
