I think your problem is the interface setting in your filters? The most important part of the screen shots is missing (what "interface" the rules are applied on). Do you have your rules set to "any interface"? That's what it sounds like, double packet processing therefore what comes in one interface is going out the other but showing up twice on the filter if it is set for &

Do i need to Bridge to use port mapping?

12 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

I just answered my own question I had to turn off the new ignore LAN traffic option to get the filter to work I've got it working now! I have to re-direct to a web server on the existing network the clients are trying to connect from. So I managed to get it to redirect to 192.168.4.3 web server back on the client making the request.

Do i need to Bridge to use port mapping?

I still haven't quite figured out to redirect using URL. This is what I tried from a LAN client with it's IP 192.168.4.3. BWM NIC's (No bridging and no NAT just IP forwarding). 192.168.1.1 192.168.4.2 192.168.5.2 192.168.6.2 I set up a filter as follows: Protocol TCP, any source IP - any source port, any dest IP - port 80, Interface 192.168.4.2, mapping "test" enabled.

Hi Andrew. It's the reset button is working for me now. I re-did the filters and quota setup and flushed all stats yesterday following its own quota reset on the 5th day of the month. The problem is now the reset button is working fine. I've just tried reinstalling 2.9.4 again and setting it up as identical to what I was using it before, however the reset button is still working. I'll k

Out of curiosity I tried to see if a 2.9.5 was available It appears to be in that to. Cheers, Gavin. Edit: 2.9.5 is a little different. When wiping all daily stats it wipes quotas aswell. All quotas still wipe daily stats instead. The reset in individual statstics under quota still broken.

Bugs: 2.9.4 Toolbar--->Rules--->Reset All Rules----> "All Daily Statistics" and "All Quotas" is reversed. Rule Statistics--->Quotas--->"Reset" not working. As soon as that's tidy I'm considering using it full time as I'm relying on quotas more with dual rates. Kind Regards, Gavin.

Hi Martin, Which version are you running? I remember that fault but it seemed to have been resolved by the preview version 2.9.2. I haven't seen it in the last two latest previews. The current preview version is 2.9.4. Gavin.

If you provide Internet access via a NIC to the RRAS/VPN, then double packet processing can occur if data comes in then goes back out on the same machine via different interfaces with "any interface". Unless I you're using a more complex setup, you can just use the "WAN Network Interface (IP)" adaptor instead of "Any Interface" to control VPN sessions. This should

I just noticed that if you set a date under advanced tab in the rule editor to enable the filter 'after' a specific date, if you later change this back to 'always' the rule requires to manually re-enable the rule. It would be one less click if when changing this to 'always' the rule re-enables its self (subject to scheduling of course). This is a good feature though, glad someone asked for it

First you would need to create two time tables, one for the first period 4pm to 11pm then a second time table for 11pm to 4pm. To give you a rough idea: http://www.softperfect.com/products/bandwidth/manual/scheduling.htm You would then need to create two rules per client. Each one will have the opposite time table schedule assigned to it. You assign the time table you've create to a rule by

Router hangs

12 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

The typical BWM installation requires two network cards installed in the machine. One connected to the Internet (cable modem in your case), the other to the local LAN (to your Wi-Fi router in your example). BWM would then be set for internal bridging. This way all traffic goes through the BWM machine, this is a general starting point and the most important part. Your existing Wi-Fi router hooku

If the router, clients and SBM NIC's are all on the same subnet 255.255.255.0 then they will all be able to talk to each other correctly by IP address anywhere in the range 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.254. As long as your router between SBM and iDirect modem is doing NAT? Otherwise it may mess up any specific private IP address assignments your ISP may provide, however it sounds like they provide

That makes good sense Rich. Hopefully Andrew can do that. I have just loaded 2.9.2 here.

First hurdle I see in that response: The subnet mask you are using on the laptop (255.255.255.240) and router only gives you a small amount of IP's in the range 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.0.14 - if your laptop is 192.168.0.12. If your SBM machine is 192.168.0.101 on NIC 2, then technically the laptop should not be able to successfully ping NIC 2 (I think I understand that correct from your previo

I have tried all sorts of equipment and SBM has worked quite well. Here's my current setup (quite complex): Internet ADSL (PPP over ATM 5Mbps down/ 800K up) | DLINK adsl router with NAT and Wi-Fi on channel 6 (has wi-fi clients connecting full speed to Internet). | Intergrated switch | Wired network ---- (a few clients and VoIP) | Edimax wireless access point in bri

It doesn't make sense why you can not ping NIC 2 from a client if they are on the same subnet? Even if you haven't setup a gateway and DNS correctly on NIC 1, the SBM machine should still be able to ping the routers LAN IP address. I think we'll need a lot more details of your network setup to help. For example: How does the modem obtain a WAN IP address... PPPoE? Or does it require y

Just another thought, do you have a filter that 'blocks' traffic?

Do you not even get the window asking for username/password when typing in the above addresses? Can you even ping the machine's IP address that the web server is on? Try connecting to the IP address of the machine ie: "http://192.168.0.1/" or whatever the IP is in your setup. Or even try connecting on the machine its self using "http://127.0.0.1/" in case it's a name reso

Good morning Andrew, just about 3am here. I'm keeping a careful eye on BWM this morning as GB's are slowly making their way through in the more sane 10's of Mbps with the release of openSUSE 11.1 today. It's that traffic hungry I'm only 3 hops from an Akamai deploy at the moment! Before I was about 15 hops from a general mirror. I've got 2.9.1 running as it seems to have been pretty good tes

I haven't noticed this before but thought but though I'd mention it incase it was related to anything. The graph seems to be overlaying blue lines along with the green now and then. Uploading at the time was less than a few bytes, not the same as the receiving traffic. Gavin.

Can't access BM remotely from PCs on client side, only on router side.

12 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

I'm assuming the client side adaptor of the bridge has an IP address that others on the LAN can ping? Is Windows XP firewall trying to run on that adaptor, possibly blocking port access to the BWM service? Do you have any "blocked" rules assigned to the client/LAN side adaptor? You've probably covered those but it's worth mentioning just in case. Cheers, Gavin.

Hi Andrew. Quick ipconfig /all > *txt from the server and client attached along with rules xml export. As you can see quite a simple test, just the two rules left running while trying to figure out what I'm not doing quite right, or what's not working. All of my rules usually reside on interface 2 but I've removed them while I check this. I read the manual a short while ago on mapping

Windows still needs swap/page file space on the hard drive for virtual memory. 450MB of free hard drive space (if this is where you swap file is stored) is cutting it a little tight depending on your setup. I run a fixed 1.5GB swap file on my BWM machine, it just optimises virtual memory access times from the hard drive a little better for me. Each person has different requirements though so us

The "additional processing" under edit rule-->advanced, stays greyed out on me even with a port mapping entered under tools-->port mapping. I probably don't understand how exactly I would make a user redirect to a web server once a quota is suspended.

I'm a little unsure of the dual quota function but I think this doesn't look right?
