Re: Cannot talk to Firewall through BWM from the LAN side

2 years ago, by nicks in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Fixed it! Ping the firewall - No response. I also tried a port scan and got nothing back as well, and I know of several ports that are open because I opened them myself. WAN Router - We do not have a router per se, the firewall is directly plugged into a Satellite internet modem. That modem has an internal IP address of 192.168.0.1 which I can access. I also just tested Disable All Rul

Cannot talk to Firewall through BWM from the LAN side

This has been a problem ever since we upgraded from 2.? to 3.? and I am finally getting around to asking about it now... Our configuration is currently: Internet (WAN) -> Firewall (10.150.0.1) -> BWM NIC 1 (10.150.0.2) /(Softperfect Bridge)\ BWM NIC 2 (10.150.0.3) -> LAN Switch -> rest of network (LAN) Our firewall uses a program in order to access it (Watchguard if it matters)

Here is my current rule set. I have individual rules for each IP, one for up and one for down. This shows the first set of down rules. The only difference between down and up is the direction and the source/destination details are reversed.

Thanks Andrew. So I set-up that rule a rule days ago. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to capturing anything. For 11/25 the BWM says 514mb Down and Starband says 650mb Down and the catch-all rule says 3.26mb Down. Small difference, no biggie For 11/26 the BWM says 563mb Down and Starband says 1000mb Down!! and the catch-all says 13.6mb Down. Huge Difference, this is killing me. Any

Discrepancy between Starband and Bandwidth Manager?

4 years ago, by nicks in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Has anyone else run into this problem? I am finding a pretty large discrepancy between the usage the BWM reports and the usage Starband is reporting. About half the time the two will match and the other half the time I see a discrepancy ranging from 100mb to 500mb a day difference between Starband and the BWM, with the Starband report showing the higher usage. This of course is of great concer

Sorry Andrew but it looks like I still have a problem with my rules. It appears my firewall rule is capturing all traffic and my Dynamic MAC rule is not being used at all. Yesterday 1gig of traffic passed through my firewall rule and No traffic passed through my MAC rule. So how do I adjust my firewall rule or my MAC rules? The reason I created the firewall rule was because the MAC rule

HA! Figured it out! I checked my older version of BWM and saw that I did NOT have "Ignore Local Traffic" clicked in the Settings Menu on the older version. So I checked the new version, and I did have that selected. I un-checked it and now it works perfectly for DHCP. Yay. -Nick

Thanks Andrew but that one did not work. What is weird is that with the old version of the BWM we do not have a problem with this. I am still running the older version on another, completely separate network and having the DHCP on the WAN side has not been a problem. Also interesting to note is that with the older version I never had to do the Metric workaround I had to do above. My older BWM

Andrew, Thanks so much for your continued help. I adjusted my rules to look like this, what do you think? For the second item, not being able to access the firewall from the BWM, your suggestion to look at the Connectivity Issues web page worked perfectly. After I deleted the gateway ip from the LAN side, adjusted Metrics and added the run command, everything works great on the BWM.

The rules you see are all the rules I have (well actually I have one more but it is disabled. I was trying to create different upload vs download rules but gave up and just want to focus on the single combined usage MAC rule). I have no generic blocking rule since everyone is welcome to use the network. I just want everyone's bandwidth managed. So which interface should I apply my rules to?

Re: Clarification on Rule order

Yeah, so I am definitely having troubles. The Mac rule i created started to filter access to the firewall and blocked all traffic from going through the firewall/DHCP. So wireless users could not get an IP address and no one could get through the BWM to the firewall and out. I created a new unlimited rule for the firewall and I think I solved the problem but I can not access the firewall's bro

Clarification on Rule order

Just hoping for some clarification on my rule order and set-up with the new BWM program. Physical Computer Set-up: Satellite Modem -> Netgear Firewall/DHCP -> BWM -> (3) physical computers and wifi BWM set-up: Transparent bridge configured (my BWM computer does not use ICS) Ignore Local traffic Rule set-up and order: Rule for computer 1 for 50mb/hour usage combined Rule for
