is there a way on my GL-AR300M to restrict download quota? Maybe with a nice luci plugin??
I’ve installed iptables-mod-extra and edited: etc/sysctl.conf for iptables=1 .
Tried ssh iptables and normal: without luck.
Can someone explain what I should do, or why all is not working?
PS: I’m a newby and i am a Little bit afraid to install just for this reason gargoyl.
In classic way for quoting You need proxy. I recommended “3proxy” or “tinyproxy”
Thanks for the answer, but I found no information about a download volume limit for tinyproxy; can you suggest some please?
I found much information about squid and limiting.
TinyProxy is not suitable for the task of restricting user traffic, sorry, my mistake. But 3proxy is suitable for this. I advised to begin with him.
See my link howto
Is there a way to install Gargoyle on a GL-AR300M ? I saw the GL-AR150 is supported.
What model do. I need to use?
Ps: I’m a newbie I don’t want to compile or code.
I check Gargoyle download page and there is no support of AR300M
Can someone give us a guide showing steps how we can accomplish data download limits? I only know how to log in the the GL-AR300M interface and there is no such setting in the UI.
Do you want to limit by IP or interface?
I would like to set a daily data limit of 300MB across all users connected to my router. So if user 1 consumes 50MB and user 2 consumes 50MB the total data consumed would be 100MB. I hope this explains it better
I looked for tinyproxy (there is no quota) and I tried 3proxy (this is not installable easyli on OpenWRT)!!.
I think the key is to make a quota for a Interface like 2nd WLan or so??
I´ve made nettables +(iptables=1) and iptables-mod-extra and quota2 ((on my router)) but it is not stable working with ssh and iptables.
- tried squid for all (but much work)(and not transparent by Default).
I think Gargoyle (AR150) is a good solution and i am open to others…
- Maybe load balancing is a solution as well.
I’m not sure if you’re looking for this:
Objective: To limit the speed of uploads or downloads of certain devices in the network.
We will achieve this goal with a script, but first we have to be clear the following variables:
TC=tc ~ Name of command Traffic Control
IF=br-lan ~ iface to controll the speed limit
DNLD=100kbit ~ Download limit
UPLD=10kbit ~ Upload limit
IP=192.168.2.12 ~ Example: First IP to limit speed
IP2=192.168.2.52 ~ Example: Second IP to limit speed
Once we have the script the first thing we will do is put the ip of which device we want to limit the internet speed.
# nano limitar.sh
Once modified in the file; The upload / download speed and ip. Save the file and close.
ctrl+o [enter] ctrl+x
We execute it with the command:
sh limitar.sh start
And we stop it with the command:
sh limitar.sh stop
