Limiting shared outgoing traffic   01 March 2006, 09:05

I have a 3mb outgoing x 12mb incoming bonded ADSL service, and I am trying to limit my outgoing traffic to a total of 1.5mb.
I have only 5 systems that send out traffic through this network, what settings would I need to use to limit each system so that it sends out only a maximum of 300 Kilobytes?

Basically, I want to limit my entire outgoing bandwidth to 1.5 megabytes.

If you don't have a Windows based gateway, then you have to install a copy of the software on each computer. Your bandwidth rules might be:

Rule #1: Protocol: TCP/UDP, Direction: Both, Rate: Unlimited, Source: Range 192.168.0.0 - 192.168.0.255, Destination: Range 192.168.0.0 - 192.168.0.255.
Rule #2: Protocol: TCP/UDP, Direction: Both, Rate: 300 KB/s, Source: local host, Destination: Any IP address.

Adjust these IP addresses to your network's ones.

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.
