How to add data quota to a specific IP address   28 January 2020, 19:54

How can I add a quota to a specific IP from a group?
For example:
1) Rule R1 is taking the source from group G1.
2) In group G1 we have 20 IPs.
3) The access is controlled by quota Q1, which is configured for 2 mbps speed and 4 GB data usage.
4) Out of the 20 IPs I want to add 1 GB of data to a specific IP, say 12.12.12.12.

The easiest way to add 1 GB to a specific IP's quota would be as follows:
  1. Create a new quota of 1 GB with the reduced rate set to Suspended.
  2. Create a new rule with 12.12.12.12 listed as the Source and link it with the above quota.
  3. Place this new rule above rule R1.
As a result, 12.12.12.12 will be first handled by the newly created rule until its quota is used up.
Once 1 GB has been used up, this rule will enter the Suspended state and the next rule in the list, that is rule R1, will continue handling traffic from 12.12.12.12.
