We have a quite large network and we need to share the internet bandwidth in a fair way for everyone.

For example, if we have a 10 Mbps internet link and 10 users trying to push more than 1 Mbps, Kerio Control should allow a fair share of 1Mbps foreach user

How can we accomplish this?

We do not want to limit tcp/udp sessions or create a rule for each user we have

You could add a bandwidth management rule per user specifying the download and upload limits, reserving at least some bandwidth but no more than a maximum per user. In this scenario you could set different limits per user The thing is, you would need to add one rule per user which would make it hard to do if there are many users.

On the other hand, if you want the allowed bandwidth per user to be the exact same, maybe the simplest way, although maybe not as granular as above, would be to put all users in a group and then apply a single BM rule to the entire group.

Try enabling bandwidth management rule with the traffic being "Large Data Transfers". Here you can specify either a specific upload/download limit or a percentage of your overall bandwidth pipe. I find it to be very effective when you have users consuming most of your bandwidth due to large file transfers, etc.
