Hi ALL,

I have a home network and trying to limit people on the network to 5Gb Per Month

I am running the system as follows:

DSL Router To Gateway PC - Running 2 network cards (In bridge Mode)
Gateway pc to uplink port on a HUB

Client pcs connect to the hub

I have entered the the rules but its not getting any data ?
how do you setup this ?

First of all, define a quota of the required size. Note, that quotas are per rule. If you define a 5 GB quota and assign it 3 rules, the total allowed consumption will be 15 GB.

Then, if the bandwidth manager is installed on the gateway PC, define the following set of rules:
Rule #1:
 Protocol: TCP/UDP
 Direction: Both
 Rate: set the quota
 Source: Client IP address
 Destination: Any IP address
 Interface: LAN (which points to the local network)

Rule #2:
 Protocol: TCP/UDP
 Direction: Both
 Rate: set the quota
 Source: Client IP address
 Destination: Any IP address
 Interface: LAN (which points to the local network)
and so on. Hope this helps.
