Hi, im trying to apply this guide https://support.sophos.com/support/s/article/KB-000035653?language=en_US to my setup but it doesnt work, does anybody if i can set a bandwith limit for a complete group?
As you can see, the limit doesnt work. Anybody has an idea? thanks!
Bytes vs Bits. Notice that Sophos calculates the bandwidth in Kilobytes (KBs or KBps) vs kilobits (Kbps). 10,000 Kilobytes (KBs) per second = 80 Megabits (Mbps) per second. If you want to limit them to…
what is the connection speed of your link? You are aware that your setting is for 80mb/s (10,000KB/s)?
Hi my link is 200/200Mbps but limited by my current group to 30/30 but with an router with load balanced, so I thought that 10000 Kbps will be 10Mbps as I do in my router :s
Any Ideas? thanks.
How do you do the conversion for 80mb/s (10,000KB/s) as you say? thanks
Hi Miguel Cruz,
1. if your internet BW not dedicated , please make sure you have correct setting value for "Total available WAN bandwidth" on Configure --> System Services ---> Traffic Shapping Setting, sometimes the issue come from your BW is up to not 1:12. Please check not only from speedtest, check using another speedtest website.
I had that setting, but not sure what you mean.
Is your ISP dedicated or broadband? have you check / testing using another speedtest like : http://speedtest.googlefiber.net/ ?
It is not dedicated but with the router i mentioned it works perfectly, and yep, i have tested my Internet connection with many other sites.
note that im being limited with my router to 30/Mbps and it works

Thanks, maybe thats the reason, ill try with that
Do you know if its possible to change a setting to make it work with Mbps by default? thanks
