P2P Bandwidth Control

P2P Bandwidth Control   30 November 2005, 14:35


I've got two PCs connnected to the Net through an ADSL modem/router, one PC runs P2P software that downloads at full speed, the other PC is used for surfing the net.

Due to the first computer taking up all the bandwidth, surfing on the 2nd PC is very slow, how can I use Bandwidth Manager to limit the P2P speeds while the other PC is been used to surf?

Yes, just install a copy of the bandwidth manager (I recommend Lite edition) on the PC that serves for P2P and make a limiting rule. It can be a rule limiting everything in/out from that PC, or you can create a rule to limit P2P only, then rule should throttle the following ports: 411-413,1214,3531,4661-4665,6345-6348,6881-6889

(you can enter them as a list 411,412,413,1214,3531,4661,...,4665,6345,6346,6347,6348,6881,...,6889.

Sometimes you can get the answer faster if you try the forum search and/or have a look at the software user manual to see if your question has already been answered.
