Re: Life time of quta Quota rule

12 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

12 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

12 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

12 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).

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

12 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

12 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

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

12 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

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.

Re: network setup

12 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

There is no magic way to limit bandwidth of other network computers unless direct filtering of their traffic. Since your network does not have a separate Windows based router, you should install the bandwidth manager service on other two computers as well. After that, you will be able to control them from your own PC.

Re: ADSL BANDWIDTH CONTROL

12 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

As I understand, you have the Server with Windows XP having two network connections: to the LAN and to the ADSL modem. In this case if the SoftPerfect Bandwidth Manager is on the server, your rules could be as follows: Rule #1 (limited UL/DL): Protocol: TCP/UDP Direction: Both Rate: X bytes/sec Source: 192.168.0.2 Destination: Any IP address. Interface: LAN Rule #2 (Unlimited UL

Re: How to setup remote admin

12 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

That's simply. When you run the Bandwidth Manager it asks you for a host name and password. In the case if the core and GUI are installed on the same computer, you enter 'localhost' as the host name. If you would like to manage it remotely, install the GUI component on your admin station and specify the IP address/host name of the PC running the bandwidth manager core. Both the core and GUI are i

Re: automatic notifications after the start of the program

Thank you for pointing us to this issue. This is a bug and it has been fixed. The installation package has been updated. Please download the update from the download center and install it over the previously installed copy.

Re: ADSL BANDWIDTH CONTROL

Please describe your network more detailed. How are the ADSL modem, server and users connected to each other?

Re: Unsure about quota management

12 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Currently, no. The SoftPerfect Bandwidth Manager is a shaping product only, but perhaps in the future it will be improved to be a whole Internet Sharing solution.

Re: Unsure about quota management

12 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

So, you can't use two MAC addresses in a rule and this is a problem. In the future we are going to add MAC and IP groups. In other words, it will be possible to assign a rule with two (or more) MAC addresses. This would solve your problem.

Re: Do I to install bandwidth manager to all workstations?

12 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

It depends. If the server connected to the DSL modem is the gateway for all the 11 computers, the answer is yes. In other words, if all the PCs access the Internet through the server connected to the DSL, you only need to install the SoftPerfect Bandwidth Manager to this server.

Re: Unsure about quota management

12 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

In this case, if two IP addresses are defined in a rule, and this rule assigned with a quota, then both these addresses share the same quota and transfer rate.

Re: set up bandwidth manager with 20 computers

12 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Yes, in this case you should create twenty rules (a rule per computer). Your rules might be as follows: Rule Protocol: TCP/UDP Direction: Both Rate: 10 kb/sec Source: 192.168.0.101 (for example, a workstation IP) Destination: local host : proxy port Interface: One connected to the LAN (not to modem!) Rule Protocol: TCP/UDP Direction: Both Rate: 10 kb/sec Source: 192.1

Re: How much bandwidth does Print Inspector use for remote queues?

12 years ago, by Andrew in Print Inspector Forum

1. It requests the queue every second, so the bandwidth can be heavier than the WAN link capacity. It is not recommended to install Print Inspector remotely. It works better if it is installed directly on a print server with locally connected printer. 2. No way to monitor printers not configured locally. 3. Since Print Inspector stores all the information a standard MS Access database, you

Re: Unsure about quota management

12 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Quotas are per rule. If a rule covers an IP address range and is linked with a quota, then these IP addresses share the quota. If you need to provide every IP address with a personal quota, you need to create a number of rules in accordance with the scheme "One Rule - One IP Address".
