    Default Max throughput per port

    Hi guys, sorry if this sound stupid. I'm new here.

    Since UT can support multiple NIC. I am wondering if it is possible to limit throughput at the NIC port level?

    Say if I have the following NIC/port

    NIC/port1 = EXTERNAL
    NIC/port2 = INTERNAL
    NIC/port3 = DMZ
    NIC/port4 = DSLAM
    NIC/port5 = WLAN

    And, my backhaul (External) is a 10MBps. I would like to limit throughput as follows:

    NIC/port1 = EXTERNAL (NO LIMIT)
    NIC/port2 = INTERNAL (2MBps)
    NIC/port3 = DMZ (2MBps)
    NIC/port4 = DSLAM (2Mbps)
    NIC/port5 = WLAN (4Mbps)

    or would it be better to say do it this way:

    NIC/port1 = EXTERNAL (NO LIMIT)
    NIC/port2 = INTERNAL (2MBps)
    NIC/port3 = DMZ (2MBps)
    NIC/port4 = MANAGED (6MBps) ----- VYATTA ROUTER

    or

    ISP(10Mbps)
    |
    |
    VYATTA ROUTER----- DSLAM (2MBps)
    | |
    | --- WLAN (4MBps)
    |
    |
    UT SERVER (4Mbps)
    NIC/port1 = EXTERNAL (NO LIMIT)
    NIC/port2 = INTERNAL (2MBps)
    NIC/port3 = DMZ (2MBps)



    Thanks in advance for any feedback.

    Short answer... No.

    The QoS in UT isn't that advanced.

    Thanks for the quick reply... help me on the next route of action. (But, is this on UT roadmap?)

    I guess the best way is to use Vyatta first as the router and then use UT in bridge mode to do all the filtering as in this setup:

    HTML Code:
    WWW
     |
     |
    VYATTA ROUTER-----UNTANGLE1-----EXTRANET1 (DSLAM with MANAGED SVC)
     |    |    |           |
     |    |    |           |
     |    |    |           EXTRANET2 (WLAN with MANAGED SVC)
     |    |    |
     |    |    EXTRANET3 (DSLAM)
     |    |
     |    EXTRANET4 (WLAN)
     |
    UNTANGLE2-----INTERNAL-----BILLING/DB SERVERs
     |
     |     
    DMZ              
     |
    WEB/EMAIL/RADIUS SERVERs

    jaffaizal,

    i looks to me like your untangle box with 4 NICs is connected to your VYATTA ROUTER? I'm assuming that the router has 4 ports in it that connects each of the NICs to the internet?

    Instead of Untangle doing the rate limiting, can you not jam a Cisco switch inbetween untangle and your router, then configure each switch port for appropriate rate limiting?

    INTERNET <--> ROUTER <--> SWITCH <--> UNTANGLE w/4 NIC <--> LAN

    Depending on which Cisco switch model, example commands might be:

    service-policy input 2048bps or
    traffic-shape rate 128000
