Re: I cant seem to get it running on my network

13 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Try to make your first rule a bit different: Rule #1: Protocol: TCP/UDP, Source: Range 192.168.1.0 - 192.168.1.253, Destination: Range 192.168.1.0 - 192.168.1.253, Unlimited. Changes are marked in bold.

Re: Daily trafic log by IP?

13 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

As Barry said, yes. Not per IP stats but per rule. Usually a rule is bound with an IP address so this is not a problem.

Thanks, now please open a command prompt on the computer 2, then run the command "ipconfig /all" (without the quotes). Post its output here.

What are your rules exactly? I cannot help you without this information.

Re: service shutting down shortly after launch

13 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Is there any messages in the system event log (see both Application and System logs), is there a file BWMSVC.LOG located in the bandwidth manager installation directory? The reason should be logged somewhere.

Please describe what you have donw for now in details. Is the service on PC2 configured? If so, what are the rules?

Re: Losing internet connection

13 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Unfortunately this is not enough. When the Sygate firewall is disabled, its kernel remains unloaded that causes a conflict with our software. The Sygate NDIS driver makes a dirty hook by modifying the TCPIP.SYS module image. This makes co-existence with Sygate very difficult.

Re: Unsure about quota management

13 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

I am sorry, but global quotas do not seem to be useful if groups of addresses are available. If you contact me by e-mail, I can send you an URL to our new release of the SoftPerfect Bandwidth Manager. It has not been tested in full, but seems to be stable. It includes groups support, so you can bind a rule with a group of up to 255 MAC addresses (as well as 255 separate IP addresses and IP ranges

Re: P2P Bandwidth Control

13 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Yes, just install a copy of the bandwidth manager (I recommend Lite edition) on the PC that serves for P2P and make a limiting rule. It can be a rule limiting everything in/out from that PC, or you can create a rule to limit P2P only, then rule should throttle the following ports: 411-413,1214,3531,4661-4665,6345-6348,6881-6889 (you can enter them as a list 411,412,413,1214,3531,4661,...,4665

Re: How to use maximum Queue size?

13 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

This parameter controls the internal rule queue size. In general, the bandwidth manager works so: an intercepted network packet is either placed into the queue or is sent directly with no delay. If it is placed in the queue, it remains there until available bandwidth appears. If the packets come at a high rate, but the manager is unable to send them from the queue due to set limit, the queue may

Re: ip dinamic

13 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

It is like Example #3 from the user's manual: Example 3: You have a network connected to the Internet through a hardware router or a DSL modem. You would like to limit internet access speed for some or all users but you do not need to limit traffic within your LAN. In this case, you need to install the SoftPerfect Bandwidth Manager service on each network computer on which you would li

Usually this is done built-in Windiws auditing features to track who access what files. You can also try the following tool

Re: ip dinamic

13 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

You should connect to each PC and make some rules. This error #10060 usually indicates a problem with firewall. The firewall either on the machine with GUI or on the machines with the service prohibits the network connection from the GUI to the service. The manager uses ports 8701 and 8702, protocol TCP.

Re: Remote

13 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

When you run the bandwidth manager GUI it asks how where would you like to connect to (default: localhost). A rule can be something like this: Protocol: TCP/UDP Source: local host Destination: Any

Re: Remote bandwidth management

13 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

If in your network there is no Windows based gateway, you have to install the bandwidth manager (at least its service component) to each computer to limit its speed. At your server, you should install the GUI component of the bandwidth manager. With it you will be able to connect to the service component on other PCs and manage their bandwidth.

Re: I cant seem to get it running on my network

13 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

In your case, you can setup the bandwidth manager service on those computers that require to shape their bandwidth. You can install the bandwidth manager GUI on your own PC (Comp1?) and manage other PC's bandwidth through the network on the computers with installed bandwidth manager service.

Re: dynamically write to a file

1. Yes, if use standard Windows BAT/CMD files 2. Yes, it uses global scan settings Finally, you can merge the files into a complete one using the 'type *.txt > results.txt' shell command.

Re: dynamically write to a file

13 years ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

I am sorry, but this feature would be a quite difficult to be implemented from the point of view of the network scanner internals. As a solution, you could create a batch file to run the network scanner to scan shorter ranges. For instance, if you are trying to scan the range 10.0.0.0 - 20.0.0.0, your batch file could be as follows: netscan.exe /range:10.0.0.0-10.255.255.255 /auto:net10.txt n

Re: Remote Host - Quota Management

13 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

There is no enough information. Post here the Bandwidth Manager event log (it writes a note when switching quotas) and also tell what is in 'Tools' - Usage Report' for that rule.

Re: Life time of quta Quota rule

13 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Yes, if quota duration is set to a day, as soon as it is reached, the manager switches the rule(s) transfer rate. Next day (00:01 AM) it'll switch the rule back to the normal transfer rate until the quota is reached again.

Re: Blocking ping and tracert from the local network, blocking traffic on empty ports

13 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

There is currently no way to block ICMP traffic from the LAN. To block the unused IP addresses pool, add a corresponding rule at the end of the rule set.

Re: Installation problem - traffic stops

13 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Perhaps because of some third-party traffic filtering programs like an antivirus or firewall. At the moment we know that the SoftPerfect Bandwidth Manager is not compatible with Sygate personal firewall.

Re: Limiting upload question

13 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

This number does not apply to the TCP ACK option. You may only need to adjust the max. queue size if you have many bandwidth rules and the program takes too much memory (RAM).

Re: Display the Folders Recusively

This feature is not supported in the network scanner. However, we have another product for that: LAN Search Pro. Take a look

Re: Limiting upload speed only

13 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Yes, most probably this is because of a confirmation packets delay. Try setting (from main menu File - Settings - Advanced) a SoftPerfect Bandwidth Manager option called "Transmit short TCP ACK frames with no queue". When the option is set and you download a file confirmation packets from your PC to the server come without trapping into the upload limit.

Re: Upgrading Lite edition to Standard

13 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Yes, you can do so if the SoftPerfect Bandwidth Manager Lite is installed on a single machine (usually a Windows based gateway). You can also later upgrade to the standard edition by paying the rest between the lite and standard license costs.

Re: Information about printed pages

13 years ago, by Andrew in Print Inspector Forum

Sorry, there is nothing can be done about that. Different printers report their events differently and if Print Inspector is not "told" the correct number of pages, there is no way fix it.

Re: Time duration of Quotas

13 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Quota can be set per day, per week or per month. But you can simply split it. If your quota is for example 3 Gb for 3 months, why don't set it 1 Gb per month?

Re: PrintInspector and Novell Printer Queue

13 years ago, by Andrew in Print Inspector Forum

Sorry, Print Inspector requires to be installed on a Windows based print server (i.e. a PC running Windows with physically connected printers). Any other layouts might work incorrectly or not work at all.
