How do you properly set traffic rules so that unlogged users can't consume bandwidth?

See the section: Enforcing Security and Access Policies

Bottom line: force user authentication. It's a security policy rather than a traffic policy. If you don't authenticate, then no traffic.

Hello ksnyder.

I have it as such. I have the check mark option enabled on "Require users to authenticate to browse the web", but still It lets some devices browse and download content.

What else can I do?

Dear Bryan

Thank you. This rule is now working. But the issue is that now, once on the network, you have to manually go to the control:4081/ and login, otherwise the browser times out waiting for data.

You may need to still have a rule allowing HTTP for the entire local network. Refer to this article http://kb.kerio.com/product/kerio-control/security/configuri ng-traffic-rules-1312.html#sect-usersinrules
Note that the redirect to the authentication page will only happen for HTTP (non-secure) pages.
You might also want to have a look at this article http://kb.kerio.com/product/kerio-control/server-configurati on-kerio-control/configuring-automatic-user-login-1569.html
