I'm trying to limit download bandwidth for a single host, and the limit is not being imposed. Can someone tell me what's wrong? Thanks very much
The host is Mighty Ong, 172.16.16.240
Seems like your Client is using the default firewall rule #4 and not your limited. Switch position and place your QoS Rule on top.
do a speed test to an external IP, then look up that external IP in the logs and confirm it's going through the rule with QoS

Thanks, but do you see anything wrong with the config? I think something's wrong with the firewall rule, but I can't identify it.
Thanks very much. This is how it looks now. But this stops all traffic to the client, except for an odd MB or two intially. So something else is wrong.
When I move the rule up, it blocks all traffic to the host. Is something wrong with the rule?
Hi Peter Collins,
Thank you for the screenshot. Did you configure the NAT rule for this firewall rule?

I had not created one. I read a little about NAT rules, went into the fw rule and clicked the button to create a linked NAT rule. Now there's a linked NAT rule, but traffic still does not flow at all to that machine.
You need to set the SNAT to MASQ.
I am going to name my next two children Lucar and H_Patel. It works now. Thanks so much. I'll have to learn more about the NAT rules.
I'm glad to know that your issue is resolved.
We have the NAT rules explained in detail in the following video: XG Firewall (v18): NAT Enhancements.
