Rules

Overview

Note: Before adding rules, we recommend you first configure the server for your network. In some cases Bandwidth Controller may be unable to automatically detect internet speed and adapter orientation, so these options must be set manually.

Rules allow you to define the nature of the traffic shaping that you require. They allow you to specify the users that are to be affected, as well as the different applications, ports and protocols that travel through a typical internet gateway.

As well as classifying the type of traffic you wish to filter, rules allow you to then process that information in various ways. You can prioritize it above other traffic, limit it to a maximum speed or even block it altogether.

Each rule has a local and remote endpoint. The local endpoint is the address of the user you wish to control. The remote endpoint is the address of the website or server that the user is connecting to. Most rules contain just a user's domain name in the local endpoint, and an internet service port number in the remote endpoint (with 'Any' for the address).
