Configuring Bandwidth Interfaces

Note: This topic applies to the Inverness Release.

You must configure the available bandwidth for incoming and outgoing traffic, for each interface on your Smoothwall that you want to shape. It is recommended that you configure slightly less than the expected maximum throughput of that interface to be certain of avoiding packet queues. Typically, this would be 95% of the expected maximum.

The following procedure assumes you have configured your Smoothwall to either process external traffic, or as a bridge. For a detailed description of how to do either, see Working with Interfaces and Roles
