Title: Error in the Traffic Shaper How-To.
Post by: Flink on July 08, 2021, 12:38:46 pm
Hello.
I am in the process of moving over from pfsense and noticed an error in the Traffic Shaper how-to for Multi Interface shaping for a GuestNet https://docs.opnsense.org/manual/how-tos/shaper_guestnet.html (https://docs.opnsense.org/manual/how-tos/shaper_guestnet.html). I made this account to hopefully notify someone who can correct it. English is not my first language, so please, if anything is not clear just ask for clarification.

The error is at the very bottom in the rules section. It says to select WAN as Interface(1) and the GuestNet for Interface2 for the rule for the Download pipe, and then the interfaces are switched in the rule for the Upload pipe. This does not yield the desired effect, when the Direction is In in the first instance, and Out in the latter. The effect is that only Download is effected, and upload is unaffected by any of the pipes. Instead, use WAN as Interface(1) and GuestNet in interface2 in both rules. That's how I did it at least, and it works.

Kind regards - Flink

Not sure if I get you correct, upload rule is from Guest to WAN in outgoing direction .. sure that it doesnt work this way?

Oh I see I've jumbled too much into one line. There are two things at play here, the Interfaces, and a field called "Direction". So in the download rule, the interfaces are 1) WAN and 2) GuestNet and the Direction is "In". On the upload rule, the interfaces are switched and the Direction field is "Out". And this is not working, though It'd be great to get someone to replicate it. Hope this clarifies it.
