Controlling bandwidth based on user account   06 April 2006, 07:54

Hello.

I am currently evaluating your Bandwidth Manager product and find it a very powerful and easy to use tool.
I have a server with various users and multiple allocated IPs and would like to be able to use Bandwidth Manager to
manage each user's bandwidth and quota. Does the tool offer such features?

Thanks,
Jim

No, unfortunately this is not possible. The banwidth manager runs in the system kernel apart from interactive users. However, if each user has assigned a separate IP address, you can create a number of rules for each user so when he logs on he will use the separate address and will be captured by the corresponding bandwidth manager rule.

Thanks for replying to my post Andrew.
Do you know of a way to force a user's processes bind to a specific IP on Windows 2003 server?

Thanks,
Jim

No, I don't. As I know application are able to bind to any (or all available) addresses. However, you can try to put the netsh interface ip set address command into startup scripts for each user to set his/her personal IP address. Open a command prompt and type 'netsh interface ip set address' for more information.

Dan, one subnetwork have have just one gateway. However, the gateway may forward packets through different links (DSL connections) if routing the gateway tables are properly set.
