Hi there,
I just wanted to confirm a couple of things about your Bandwidth Manager software:
  • Can the software do DPI packet inspection (protocols used in real-time per rule set)?
  • Can you confirm what level the trial version is on?

The Deep Packet Inspection in Bandwidth Manager is pretty basic. It is capable of matching services listed in the global settings:

Having said that, it is not guaranteed to match a specific service at all times, and DPI matching will increase CPU usage. Depending on what you need, it may or may not be acceptable.

Regarding the trial version, it is a fully functional 30-day trial, i.e. exactly same functionality as the licensed version, only limited by the 30-day time frame. You can download it from Bandwidth Manager product page, give it good run and see if it suits your requirements.
