Clients seen as one hose through Linksys router

12 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

I forgot to include: The XP machine static route must be made permanent or it'll be lost after a reboot. To do this, you include the "-p" which I missed out earlier in my example. route -p add 192.168.1.0 mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.2 Gavin.

Hi Paul. Andrew pretty much remembered what I completely forgot The clients will need to use the DNS address 192.168.0.1 (ICS encorperates DNS forwarding). This can either be put in manually on each client machine or if the clients are using DHCP; on the WRT54G in it's DHCP LAN/WIFI settings (not WAN) it needs to hand out the DNS server of 192.168.0.1 (again only if clients are using DHCP).

I switched to static routing to solve a similar problem as I have BWM between access points (long range wireless links) and clients. You could always just take a cable from a LAN port of the WRT54G to the XP machine, and assign clients their default router as the ICS/BWM machine. That way you avoid using the WAN port and NAT on the WRT54G all together and use it more of just an access point?

Could you please describe just a little more about the IP address configuration. For example: IP address of the LAN side adaptor in the XP machine running ICS? IP address of the WAN side adaptor in the XP machine (private or public address)? IP address of the Interface on the Linksys that connects to the XP machine? and which interface are you using, a LAN port or WAN port to connect t

That's strange. It works ok for me. I even use authentication with my ISP's SMTP server since my return email address belongs to a different provider again. I thought I might have a hick-up with that however it works fine. What you've described sounds about the same as what I did. I setup the settings for the notifcation, created the notification rules, then enabled them with an email addres

As shunt010 pointed out, If you have a block any protocol as your last filter, you are probably blocking the "Address Resolution Protocol (ARP)". Therefore after 10 minutes the MAC address of you client is being forgotten, and due to the block any protocol rule the bandwidth manager machine is unable to resolve the clients MAC address again and visa versa. Here's a little more info on

I love the email notification, awesome! Is there a syntax to put the bitrate rather than bytes per second rate in the notification at this early stage? I get the same here with queue size Lucas. I'm sure Andrew will fix that fairly soon. I was about to install another firewall to keep wi-fi users off another internal LAN segment, then I remembered I can just block traffic with BWM. I keep

With the new dual rate setting do you think the following would be possible to compliment this new feature: If I specify a quota of 64000:256000 as the initial rate, and try to set a reduced rate of 64000:64000 or just 64000, it says the reduced rate must be lower and won't accept it. Is it possible to have that warning box that pops up have an "ignore" option? Or is it hard coded tha

Makes sense to me Tony. eg: Being able to specify both a default quota and current quota on a per filter basis. So you can change the current quota, but have it automatically reset to the filters user specified default quota at the end of the month? That sounds like a good idea. Andrew?

Tony, I have tested the dual rates seperated by a colon in quota's and it works fine for me. It runs really well and makes managing total sum quotas for one filter much easier. To whoever orginally suggested that idea, good one Gavin.

Duh! Silly me. Now that I've re-checked the NIC's I think my problem was a bridge loop and not 2.9 preview. I have this: intergrated bridge/wifi----------intergrated wifi/bridge--------------NIC#1(BWMbridge)NIC#2-------LAN That must be where I'm going wrong. I never got a complete packet flood from a possible loop while running 2.8 but it must have still been there slightly in the backgr

Attached some screenshots. Notice the immediate jump in transfer rate when bridged is switched on or off. Yet the graph shows that it should be around 256Kbps in bridged mode aswell, but the actual throughput is a different story. I'm not using penalty or anything else. It's running on Win2K Pro. Gavin.

This is the only rule I had entered to start testing with. I've got session data compression on, display to bits per second, and that's it. I haven't setup anything else appart from that one rule and a test quota which I had a quick play with but is not in use at present. It's set to "both" on that rule instead. Cheers, Gavin.

Hi Andrew. Nice surprise post about the new preview. I hadn't been checking the forum these past few weeks. I created a 256000:128000 bitrate rule to test this new feature. With bridging on I get around 180Kbps downstream (256Kbps pulses with slower gaps in the middle causing the 180Kbps average speed test result). I can see the bursts on the filters graph. Upstream is worse only 48Kbps.

QuoteI am not sure what you mean, but any value between 10 and 100% is valid. I think he was referring to threshold as in "duration threshold, sec"? As this can only be set as low as 100. So a minimum of one and a half minutes have to pass before the allocation value is invoked.

Hey Andrew, love the web access! Do you think it would possible to make the Current Rate also display bits per second when set to that in options? Just for the sake of continuity. I just found the html template, awesome. Thanks, Gavin.

Hi BobbyJones. I thought I'd make a quick post aswell since it's the weekend. I'm not sure if Andrew monitors the forum on the weekend after a hard weeks coding :o). QuoteBobbyJonesI read somewhere that the modem-NIC#1 has to be on a different network to the NIC#2 and the internal network. (ie. 10.0.0.x and 192.168.0.x for example) Is that true? You can just use bridging with both cards on t

Awesome news. I'll get right on it first thing in the morning. I'm now back hauling a PBX trunk using VoIP so BWM is becoming a very important product in my use of it.

BWM and ISA 2006

13 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Hi Anton, This is how I understand BWM 'sent' and 'received' statistics to work on a NIC: If the rules are placed on the ADSL NIC then the traffic flow coming from the Internet is 'received' on that NIC even if BWM later uploads that traffic to a client on the LAN. If the rules are placed on the LAN NIC then the traffic flow going to a client downloading is being 'sent' on that NIC to the

How to limit bandwidth in each pc in the group?

13 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

>Otherwise as Carlos said, once a filter catches the traffic, it does not pass it on to the next filter below. Or as >the developer Andrew said, it can't do both individual filters and group filtering on the one machine. Just to clarify (that came out wrong), you can't do a group filter and individual filter for the same IP and both work at the same time on the same machine. Only one fil

How to limit bandwidth in each pc in the group?

13 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Just my two cents worth... You could have two machines, the first bridged machine with 56Kbps individual filters, the next bridged machine with an IP group filter of 128Kbps. This way each machine is limited to 56Kbps by the first BWM machine, then group limited to 128Kbps max on the next? It's a more untidy (messy) solution and requires two product licenses, but that would be a possible sol

MAC address AND IP address check

13 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Hi Lucas. I've experimented with www.raspppoe.com which also allows you to use it as a PPPoE concentrator by creating an incoming connections entry and creating user accounts to control username/password details. The only thing I haven't figured out is how to assign static ip's to an account so I can make filters per IP address and use quotas. Currently there are no quota's, each user just h

MAC address AND IP address check

13 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Someone who's really intent on working around a BWM filter can also use MAC spoofing. I would have thought BWM only looks at the source IP address anyway. The 10.0.3.7 machine acting as a router shouldn't replace the source IP address of 10.0.3.5 otherwise traffic can't get back to it. Unless 10.0.3.7 is running a proxy or NAT configuration in which case you can't stop an end user from using so

half duplex accountability?

13 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

The standard version build with the "combined" feature is still working really well for me. It makes managing wi-fi bandwidth so much easier. I've put BWM on an older PIII 800 with 4 NICs, one of which is a Wi-Fi adaptor. I haven't found any problems. Question, What's the easiest way to backup daily traffic report data? That way when the next build/beta is available I won't loos

Hi Andrew, I see where you're heading with the notifications tab now, and the alert manager. Nice! I like the idea of emailing to a user address when quota reached or limit changed etc... Very nice. Perhaps there should be a sticky subject that contains just the latest build version information for testing only, or something along those lines? Cheers, Gavin.
