Bandwidth Manager 2013

4 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Hi guys, sorry I haven't been doing a lto of testing, I've been a bit run off my feet of late. FYI, just installed build 3.0.2, it has come up saying the 30 day period has expired. Might want to lengthen it for beta testing. Cheers, Gavin.

Bandwidth Manager 2013

4 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Yeah sorry Andrew it sounds a bit confusing. What I was trying to do, is have one filter, any source or any destination address, with just the Advance --> Tracking mode set to "MAC Address: Own rate limit and quota for each source". The problem with this is, it doesn't apply just to automatic detected client MAC addresses, BWM is detecting it's own MAC address on the client sid

Bandwidth Manager 2013

Hi Andrew, If I create a rule with streams that each has ipv4 - any source and destination - each MAC has it's own stream etc... I would naturally put this on the client side NIC in the BWM machine, and not the upstream router NIC. However, because of the way the stream functionality is, as I currently understand it, this means it also means all traffic coming from the BWM machine has an au

I would agree with that primo. I consider 0 to mean present, and 30 to mean 30 seconds ago. It looks great though Andrew, awesome job I've just finally downloaded and installed it on one of my desktops, I will hook up another Wi-Fi AP to it on another card to test it with some wireless devices. I have it set to "MAC address: Own rate limit". At present I use parent queues on

Network Configuration

5 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

The Unify system runs AirOS. AirOS let's you set a bandwidth rate limit on each device. I already do this with some client modems with NanoStation2's. You only need the bandwidth manager for doing quota's etc... or shaping depending on network destination. Be careful when using bridging, if your wireless network also runs in bridge modes. Because having two many bridges and switches cou

Hi Andrew: Dynamic MAC rule creation/removal.

5 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

The only problems with dhcp.... If you get more than 50 people in a day they will end up sharing a quota that's already been half used by the first person etc... Depending on your setup. It's quite easy to change an ip address as well. Hence why I suggested a dynamic Mac rule creation be added to bandwidth manager. It's usually harder to change a Mac and if it setup a rule on a Mac basis autom

Dynamic MAC rule creation and removal

6 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Hi Andrew, It's been ages since I've found something worth suggesting for BWM, but I had this one problem presented to me tonight and I couldn't help but think this would be an ideal feature for BWM. A client wants to dynamically detect MAC addresses, then have a pre-defined rule with quota, applied to that MAC, then have the rule auto-deleted 24 hours later. The end user doesn't have to kn

Suggestions for the new BWM 3.0

6 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

On the LAN Interface (client side), you can have a rule for each user, and whatever quota you want, for example a 5GB quota to apply individually to each rule/IP/client machine (each client gets 5GB). Then on the WAN Interface (Internet side), you can have one rule, using an address range in the from field, to cover all the client IP's I want to cover, and another quota called for example 50G

Suggestions for the new BWM 3.0

You can kind of already do the double up quota thing. You can set up independent rules for each client with a quota on one network card, then setup a catch all filter on the second network card with a catch all quota. These quota's can be different for the catch all and the individual rules. I'm not entirely sure about bridging, but if you're routing on the BWM server then you can alrea

SoftPerfect Bandwidth Manager config and install questions

Not sure. You'd have to track the traffic down and find out exactly what it is, where it's coming from or going to. What computer is the blue line or the "15" rule? It looks like its associated with that filter/machine. Remember bandwidth manager also uses traffic, perhaps it's the BWM gui being updated when you click on the rules and stats etc...? It could be a whole range of

Glad to hear it's working Just be careful that if you reboot your computer, sometimes the interface may change back to any interface by its self if using a 'beta' with some systems. Cheers, Gavin.

Or if you are not using a BWM machine at each end of the leased line, then set the rule interface to the leased line ethernet Interface so you can control only traffic that goes through the leased line side etc...

SoftPerfect Bandwidth Manager config and install questions

Ahhh this is quite a common mistake when new to BWM. That's because you have your rule set to "any interface", so it's catching the same traffic coming in on one interface, going out on another in the same rule. Try changing your rule to apply to one interface only, such as the Interface facing the LAN.

Open BWM, go to "tools" on the menu bar. Then select "bridging" and choose the two adapters you wish to bridge.

SoftPerfect Bandwidth Manager config and install questions

You can install it two different ways: On a PC between the clients and the leased line (it will only control bandwidth of users traffic crossing this PC). There's multiple ways of doing this, such as bridging (morepopular), routing, or ICS (Internet connection sharing). Or on each individual PC (it controls the bandwidth at the client PC). But you really need a good working knowledge of

Allow specific users but block all others

6 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

If you already have rules that allow access by IP address, you can block everything else by a filter at the bottom of your existing filters. If a user's traffic is caught by another filter first, they will still have access. You only need to block everything else last. You shouldn't need to specify IP addresses in a blocked rule on your current setup. One last rule you will need to have up

wifi speed rules

6 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

You can allocate everyone a single shared maximum bandwidth pool using a single filter, or you can limit each laptop with it's own filter. There are lots of factors and there's no one-size-fits-all approach. For example it depends on as ADSL speed, Wi-Fi speed, distance from the Wi-Fi AP (if they are to far away and have a low connection speed, then everyone will be slow anyway) etc... and wha

I've been caught out with that before too. Double packet processing caused by "any interface" use. Cheers, Gavin.

When you connect to the local service, you'll have to create rules to control bandwidth first, otherwise it doesn't do anything until you create rules. Creating Rules - Online Help Pages. Cheers, Gavin.

how can i set a rule for a wifi user on my network?

6 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

If you have a user that uses both wired and wireless, the wireless card will have a different MAC than the wired Ethernet card. You'd need to make a rule including a list of both the users wifi card MAC and ethernet MAC in order to have a single rule/single quota track both his wireless or wired connection. Another alternative, is your DHCP server assigns him the same IP address to his Etherne

I'm still using beta 17, there are still some issues to sort with it, however it's never had a reboot since I installed it last year. It still runs okay for me, I'm still using the beta version because I used asymmetric bandwidth shaping.

Bandwidth Problem In LAN

If you go to settings and preferences, you'll find a LAN option, which will allow the bandwidth manager to ignore LAN traffic and therefore not limit LAN to LAN traffic.

2.9.16 Quota Rest (not working)

Hi Andrew. I still had it set to the 5th. I changed it to the 6th, then back again to the 5th and now the reset works Gav.

2K screenshot Yes. I installed both the service and gui on 2K from the one setup file. If I remember rightly, I uninstalled the previous version aswell, rather than just try and update it. XP is running 2.9.16 GUI aswell. Cheers, Gavin.

2.9.16 Quota Rest (not working)

7 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

You're in luck. I just bought a second hand DVCAM this week and the editing gear to go with it. Couldn't quite get the screen refresh rate in sync but it's enough to read the quota amount used, and see it not resetting. Remember I did get the quota's reset via the tool bar instead, so there's only about 11MB of quota used in this shot, but enough to see it not resetting. 1.8MB Video

2.9.16 Quota Rest (not working)

If I go to reset all rules, and choose only quota's, the quota's reset correctly this way. But they still won't reset in the Quota Usage tab of the individual filters. Cheers, Gav.

2.9.16 Quota Rest (not working)

7 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Hi Andrew, Yes I'm aware of this. I clicked on the Quota Usage tab, clicked on "Reset", then clicked yes to reset. I just tried it again. The client talks to the server in the other room, but the quota does not reset. It remains over used. I tried clicking refresh after resetting the quota and this makes no difference. It won't reset. Gavin.

2.9.16 Quota Rest

7 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Hi Andrew, I went to do a manual quota reset via the filter in question today, however the rest button didn't seem to do anything. I tried re-starting the GUI on my WinXP machine but it says the quotas still haven't reset. Normally they reset once a month by themselves, however this month there's enough spare bandwidth to give some away, hence I thought I'd reset a few filters, but can't.
