PFSense per IP Bandwidth Allocation

First of all, you need to create an Alias for each user on DHCP. This will ensure that you always have an "identifier" name for that IP/Machine.

 

The page looks like this and the location can be seen at the top.

Next, you have to create a limiter. Well, you have to create two. One for download and one for upload. Like so... Make sure that the Enable limiter and its children is checked.

Then create a firewall rule, with the protocol as any, the Source as your alias and then at the bottom with advanced settings, where it says In/Out pipe, put in your limiters. Like so...

Hi guys.

 

Please help me on how to configure my pfsense to allocate a bandwidth on each PC/IP. For example  PC1 with an IP Address of 192.168.50.23 will receive 5mbps speed. and PC2 with an IP Address of 192.168.50.24 will receive 15mbps speed.

 

Thank you.
