Re: IP-Range file

The network scanner connot scan more than one range at a time, but you can create a batch file to run it with your ranges line by line. There is no option to disable ping.

No, there is no such feature. Our scanner is able to scan only IP ranges.

That's our omission and we have just published an update. Please download a latest release from our web-site, install it over the previously installed copy and enable a newly added option 'Use administrative privileges' in the Print Inspector options. After that it should work.

Re: Upload "chokes" my adsl connection

No, I mean limiting the whole upstream. Supposing that your network looks like <PC1 .. PCn> - <Switch> - <Bridge with bandwidth manager> - <Router/DSL> Then I can suggest the following rule: Protocol: TCP/UDP Direction: Incoming Rate: set as needed Source: 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.0.255 Destination: Any IP address Interface: LAN (one, which points to the local netwo

Re: Upload "chokes" my adsl connection

Yes, in this case you should set an upload limit a bit lower than the link bandwiedth. For example, if your router is connected to a 512 Kbps duplex link, you can limit all uploads say at 500 or 490 Kbps to give the rest to the ACK confirmations from parallel downloads.

Re: Settings

TCP/UDP or 'Any IP' are the best settings to catch all traffic from a client. Rules applies from the top to the bottom in descending order. If some rules overlap the first matched rule will apply.

The standard installation package includes both components: the GUI and service. You can choose these during an installation process.

Re: Limiting Outgoing Traffic

If you don't have a Windows based gateway, then you have to install a copy of the software on each computer. Your bandwidth rules might be: Rule #1: Protocol: TCP/UDP, Direction: Both, Rate: Unlimited, Source: Range 192.168.0.0 - 192.168.0.255, Destination: Range 192.168.0.0 - 192.168.0.255. Rule #2: Protocol: TCP/UDP, Direction: Both, Rate: 300 KB/s, Source: local host, Destination: Any IP a

Thanks Alex For those who are interested, the current to-do list is as follows: * Overall usage chart * Realtime usage chart * Dynamic bandwidth allocation with guaranteed rates (that's a mostly requested feature) * Reset all rules command * Port mapping (including transparent proxying) * Permit bandwidth less than MTU (1514 Bytes/sec limit) * Special kind of rule to block/limit P2P net

Yes, a similar feature called 'Realtime Bandwidth Chart' is to be implemented in a next release.

Re: Setup Problem

You can use NAT to keep existing addressing, or change 172.22.0.x to 192.168.1.x to avoid using NAT.

Re: Setup Problem

14 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

This does not work because bridging does not translate addresses. Bridge is just a packet forwarder. In general, you have two solutions: enable ICS on the Win2K server, or change the router internal address to 192.168.1.x. I'd recommend to reconfigure your network as follows: <router[192.168.1.212]> - <[192.168.1.211] Win2k with BM [192.168.1.210]> - <Switch> - <Client Compu

Anything. Really. From increased ISP's links and servers load to software running on your PC nightly (like an antivirus update). It requires many test by a professional administrator to determine why it happens.

Re: Configuring my Home Network to work with Bandwidth controller..

Leave the default value. It is the maximum number of packets in the rule's queue before it starts dropping packets on overflow. Don't worry about if everything works normally.

Re: IP address instead of computer name

14 years ago, by Andrew in Print Inspector Forum

This may happen time to time but unfortunately the reason is out of Print Inspector control. The names appear exactly as these reported by the print spooler and sometimes it returns just IP address of a machine instead of its name (I suppose due to temporary WINS or NetBios system fault)

Re: Configuring my Home Network to work with Bandwidth controller..

Is the bandwudth manager service running on the gateway? Are you able to connect it? Also check the client's IP address. If IP addresses are given with DHCP the client may now have another IP address.

Re: Setting up bridge on Windows 2000 workstation with 2 NICs

Does the station with two NICs route IP packets? Has it enabled the ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) service? I am asking because there are specific sutations. Let me explain.

I am not a wizard to guess. Describe the rule you have configured. Tell where the bandwidth manager is installed (on the client PC or on the gateway server)?

Re: Configuring my Home Network to work with Bandwidth controller..

Yes, it does limit P2P as well as any other applications. To test, download a file from a web-site on a client PC. There is no need to reconnect or restart anything after adding/editing a rule.

To use MAC addresses choose the MAC address option when create the rules. You need the first rule only if your gateway is also a file server or something like that to allow the users to receive files from/to the server at a full speed.

Re: Information about network protocols

14 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Each protocol can be used in a particular case. GRE is used for virtual private networking, AH and ESP are used to secure IP traffic. The difference between 'Any' and 'Any IP based' is as follows: 'Any' means really anything going through the network card (including non-IP protocols). In practice this means it will catch widely used ARP protocol, low level LLC and PPP frames, and so on. 'An

Re: proble to config bandwith manager

14 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Right, when you disable ICS and enable the bandwidth manager bridging, the client's gateway must be 212.251.15.130 (router's IP address) instead of the LAN NIC of the bandwidth manager server.

Re: proble to config bandwith manager

14 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

You don't need to enable ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) at all. It is the reason why you see the single IP address outside. You should reconfigure your network in the following way: 1. Disable Internet Connection Sharing 2. Review TCP/IP settings on the clients. They probably use 212.251.1.99 as the default gateway. Change their gateway to the one which was specified on the external serv

Re: dynamic bandwith control

14 years ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

You may consider using quotas. Define a quota with the specified normal speed (say 100 KBps), set its reduced rate to a lower value (say 50 Kbps). As a condition to switch rates choose a number of megabytes. If you don't want to switch rates, choose an unreachable amount (say 1000000 MBytes). After that, create your rules and assign them the quota. You've done it Now, to change the tra
