Okay, I don't know if this is the right place for this or not. But I recently got Satellite internet and right now I am trying to find a proxy server or program that I can install on a computer running windows 2003 and set it to Disable my internet at certain hours of the day along with limit daily bandwidth usage for the satellite so I don't exceed the FAP
Any and all recommendations are welcome for ways to manage the bandwidth (asides physically unplugging it at night)
Well the program works well, My server froze up completely sometime last night. But the main thing is that the program did exactly what I programed it to do. I found that you need to create 2 rules for it to work well. The first is to set up your bandwidth speeds in bytes. Then the second is a copy of the first set to 0 in or out effectively cutting the internet access in and out. Then set up scheduling to enable the "kill all" rule during certain hours (for me) and a copy of that to set bandwidth capacity limits on a daily basis with a third schedule to re-enable the internet at certain hours of the day.
If you want I can create a guide on set the software on windows 2003 server.
Thanks for coming back to me with such a descriptive feedback
I will be making a general guide for it, though if you want you can send me a a guide for Win2k3 server and I will add a note saying you make the win2k3 part
