Re: Dynamic bandwidh allocation

14 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Hi Barry & TiMe, The nearest release will not contain dynamic bandwidth allocation features. This is a complex task to implement dynamic allocation, so may be in the release after the upcoming one. I will be able to tell more details once the current upcoming release finally arrives.

Re: Limit SMTP outbound

14 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

The rule can be as follows (I assume your network range is 192.168.1.6 - 192.168.1.254): Rule: SMTP Limit Protocol: TCP Direction: In Rate: 512000 Bits/sec Source: 192.168.1.6 - 192.168.1.254 Destination: Any IP address : port 25 Interface: LAN (which points to the local network)

Hi Alex & Gavin, QuoteAlex.MNumber 3. from the list of features made my day a better one I remember, we tried to import a long IP networks list and failed. It should not be a problem anymore once the new version is released. Quotekiwi_rockIs this via the manager's client or web based? I'm not bright enough to know how to code, script stuff in computer language to display some sort of

Re: HTTP/XML API

Yes, IDs are generated by the GUI. This works excellently as long as the client stable, to avoid desynchronization between IDs. The IDs are generated as "unsigned int" from GetTickCount API call. However, you can use any other unique integer values in the range 1 to 2^31-1.

Re: Upcoming Bandwidth Manager

14 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Yes, it is almost complete. there will be a way to see stats by user rather than by date, weekly and montly summaries, plus probably a little charts. Moreover, I can surely list the features that will be available shortly: 1. Configurable periods (weeks and months) for quotas. For example, if a billing period of ISP begins on 5th of every month, this can be synchronized with the bandwidth mana

I didn't realize your network topology completely. Now it is clear. Your rules can be as follows (don't forget to adjust these IP addresses to your network ones): Local Traffic Rule #1: Permit unlimited local traffic Protocol: TCP/UDP Direction: Both Rate: Unlimited Source: Range: 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.0.255 Destination: Range: 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.0.255 Interface: LAN (which

Re: Bandwidht Manager not working through ISA Server 2000

Sorry, this solution is available for Windows 2000. So, there are two choices: install Windows XP/2003 or uninstall Sygate and use another firewall instead.

Re: static MAC to IP binding

14 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

To build a static MAC to IP binding, you will need to use the Windows OS features, particularly the arp command. Open a command prompt and type arp and press Enter. Use the command line like this to add a binding: arp -s 157.55.85.212 00-aa-00-62-c6-09 This will cause your system will only be communicating with the host 157.55.85.212 if it has the MAC address 00-aa-00-62-c6-09. Please note,

Re: Is Bandwidth Manager compatible with my router?

14 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

This doesn't matter what router you use. The bandwidth manager functionality mostly depends on your network topology. Let me explain how it works. The Bandwidth Manager works in client-server model. This means it consists of two parts: the user interface (what you see) and the system service that runs and does the job. When you run the Bandwidth Manager GUI it asks you for a host name (e.g. local

Re: Bandwidth Manager and ISA Server 2000

I am not sure. Generally, the bandwidth manager is compatible with the ISA server. However, if it does not work for any reason, try to follow this advice. Hope this helps.

Re: HTTP/XML API

No, it is based on pure XML transferred via the HTTP protocol. However, as you can see it can be quite easily understood. I would also recommend to have a look at this example

Re: HTTP/XML API

Unfortunately there is no ready to use manual on this protocol yet, but if you have a specific question (e.g. how can I add a rule, or how to retrieve stats), I would be glad to help you.

Re: Bandwidth Throttling by ISPs

14 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

No, our product is not capable to do this. Moreover, it won't work in the real world. When you suspend a connection, this means no bytes are sent in both directions. The server and the client will do a few attempts in 5-10 seconds to send the data and then close the connection thinking it is broken. So, it would be better to change your ISP if possible.

Re: PPPoE Connection with BWM

14 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Thanks for sharing this idea. You are right, a PPPoE connection is usuallly in use between a gateway and ISP while we always manage bandwidth on an internal LAN NIC.

Re: Limit Down and Up

There's no enough information. I need to know your exact network layout, where the bandwidth manager is installed, IP addresses.

Please post your complete rules here. Without that I cannot answer why the rules do not work.

Re: Installing system service remotely

14 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Sorry, it can't be installed remotely. However, it can be quickly deployed by using the following command line switches (BWMSETUP.EXE): /NORESTART Instructs Setup not to reboot even if it's necessary. /DIR="x:\dirname" Overrides the default directory. A fully qualified pathname must be specified. /COMPONENTS="svc" Installs the service component only (no short

Re: Limiting wireless Internet shared with lodgers

If he accesses the Internet through a wireless link directly to the DLink access point, then there is no way to limit his bandwidth unless you can install the bandwidth manager on his computer.

Re: Losing network & internet connection

The answer is just above your question. If you disable the firewall, this does not mean its kernel unloaded. Also see this topic.

Re: Limiting p2p ports to get more bandwidth for Internet surfing

Sure, just make a rule like this: Protocol: TCP/UDP Direction: Both Rate: 20000 Source: local host (means your computer) Destination: any : ports 6881-6889 Interface: LAN (which points to the ADSL modem) or Protocol: TCP/UDP Direction: Both Rate: 20000 Source: local host (means your computer) : ports 6881-6889 Destination: any : any Interface: LAN (which points to the

Re: Firewall blocks search

I am not sure what you mean. Yes, of course you can open needed ports, or can disable the firewall completely. It's up to you.

Re: PI and SQL Server

14 years ago, by Andrew in Print Inspector Forum

Ah, this is a bug. The problem comes from the design when Print Inspector supported just a single local database. Currently, I would recommend to use different databases for two Print Inspector instances. I hope we'll fix it shortly.

Re: Proper Bridge Configuation

14 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

No, the third interface is not required. Let me explatin how bridging works, probably it would help a bit. 1. If a received packet is a broadcast packet - it is accepted by the host running the manager and at the same time forwarded to the second card in the bridge. 2. If a received packet is a packet directed to the machine running the manager - it is accepted and is NOT forwarded to the s

Re: Missing print jobs

14 years ago, by Andrew in Print Inspector Forum

Sometimes it is possible and could be caused by a number of reasons, for example: When a printer driver reports the job as a zero pages job (even if it isn't in reality). When a timeout of 30 seconds elapsed between two pages in the job (often due to a paper jam). When a job was canceled before completion.

Re: Proper Bridge Configuation

14 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Yes, these IP addresses look correct. No need to specify the default gateway as well as DNS on the cards connected to the switch. But I don't think it is the reason why it stops working... First of all, please tell what is in the program event log (I mean the bandwidth manager internal event log, not Windows logging). See Tools - Event Log from the main menu.
