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)


Thanks

Hello amw_drizz,

I found one company that might interest you.
http://bandwidthcontroller.com/
http://bandwidthcont...icShaperXp.html (a free version)

I haven't used it myself, but it might be worth trying.

Regards,
Olrik

Thanks for the info, I have too many computers to use the single user software. I am trying the demo now to see if it does what I am looking for. So far it does.

Glad to hear. I would appreciate it if you would keep me up to date :)
A lot of people start asking for this sort of software and this is the first time I actually found something.

If this works out great for you I might consider making this into a tutorial of some sorts. :)

Olrik

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.
