IP Based Rate Limiting not working properly

New Contributor

Im not sure if im doing this right but I am trying to limit certain devices on the network using a R600 but everytime I apply the policy on the WLAN, it limits all the devices thats connected instead of just certain IP's.

Under IP based User Defined Application;

Name: Tablet

IP Address: (local ip)

Netmask :

Port: 443

Protocol: tcp

I then create an application policy

Rule Type: Rate Limiting

Application Type: IP based User Defined Application

Application: Tablet

UpLink: 1mbps DownLink: 10mbps

anyone have an idea?

Hi There,

Could you provide screenshots of the WLAN configuration and show where exactly you are applying the application policy.

As per my understanding, you are creating a application policy which will only work for the traffic coming from/to with port 443 (TCP). Anything else using this IP will not rate limit.  I suggest NOT to use the policy this way, as it will not work as you are expecting.
