Hi All,
looking for some feedback from others using QOS and Bandwidth management in Control.

From my understanding, rules are processed from the top down.

so in My inststance in particular I have a P2P de-prioritise rule at the top that limits bandwidth (512kbits..I was feeling generous) and futher down the list I have another Bandwidth limiting rule that applies to users in a shapped user group or those that have exceeded their transfer quota for the day(1mbit limit).

What appears to be happening is once they have exceeded their quota, all of their traffic winds up in my shapped user pipe, including the P2P traffic that was previously being jagged in the P2P Pipe.

I have a similar rule for manually applied shaping group, and the same applies...


Is this the inteded behaviour, or is this a bug and do others see this

You do realize, that kerio so-called 'p2p' group detects ports that are written in config - p2p limiter?
It will not go beyond that ports

Furthermore, I tested setting that range to 1-65535 and what it does is, scans all those ports ok, detects p2p ok, and BANS those ports, but.....globally for ALL clients (wtf moment)
So its kinda useless in current state.

Make a separate rule for UDP ports, and throttle this rule to 25 kb/sec

On top, you can try some funny thing. Activate connection limitter, say, 300 per client.
When said corner users try p2p around, they will be hit in a connection limit wall, that will cause painfully slow surfing, and drops of pages, untill p2p is turned off.

Maybe some day kerio will make something more useful for p2p block. (Like 'Application Control' in untangle firewall <- that thing detects bittorrents in any shape or form momentarily, very-very efficient, i must say)
