    I would like to limit the amount of bandwidth the appliance can use to ensure we do not saturate our internet link. Thanks, Nick

    At the moment this is not really possible. Are you primarily interested in throtteling uploads or downloads, or both?

    We have achieved the desired result by using VMWARE traffic shapping

    Johan, You may be able to do this via IPtables or something like wondershaper. Having a globally defined upload and download rate on the FTA is a good idea that many (most) FTP servers already possess. We used to set our FTP to use a maximum of 50% of our bandwidth during business hours and 90% after hours. That's a little more complicated than what is being asked presently, but I can understand and relate to the requests for bandwidth control.

    We also require control over bandwidth throttling. At our main office, if we can allow for full upload speed/download speed but at satellite office we would like to control this to a specific max Kbps, even if it was on a different network interface or by defined subnet. This functionality if being provided by our current FTP solution, but AD and account provision is not as slick as liquid files.

    This feature was added in version 2.3. You can now throttle uploads and downloads individually and per interface.

    Hi Johan,

    we use 2.3.10 and find no way to throttle the speeds.

    Help!

    Log into the FTA as an System Admin, Goto Network. Upload limit and download limit are listed right below the IPv6 configuration.
