Hey guys,
I used searching function before, but couldn't find something, what helps me.
just trying to manage bandwidth shapeing, with monowall and freeradius. radius authenticates users and i like to give each user an other bandwidth.

For freeradius i m using the normal users file, no mysql database.

I have this attributes in there:

test Cleartext-Password: ="****"
       WISPr-Bandwidth-Max-Down := 256000
       WISPr-Bandwidth-Max-Up := 32000

How do i have to configure the monowall, that it works ? Because at the moment i dont notice a changeing in bandwidth....

PS: sorry for bad englisch

greetings from germany

I was wondering about this too, but i guess it is not that way.
you should use DHCP server in m0n0wall to assign IP address to the client which is limited by traffic shaper.
i tried freeradius and gave me the same result. then i figured out radius is for authentication only. 
this could be achieved by accounting. - in radius+ captive portal - that checks for the amount of data being transferred every minute
IN Captive Portal page
 Re authenticate connected users every minute
If reauthentication is enabled, Access-Requests will be sent to the RADIUS server for each user that is logged in every minute. If an Access-Reject is received for a user, that user is disconnected from the captive portal immediately.
and in that case you can use a limit of transferred  data over period of time.

I am realy thankfull !

I m already not sure how it works exactly but its a new idea.

But if i manage it with this reauthentication every minute in captive portal, how i have to configure the radius server ? some special attributes, or is it all done by captive portal ? And can i set diffrent datatransfer rate in a time periode for each user ?

Do I have to enable the traffic shaper of the monowall ?

It would be great if you can explain it a little bit more exactly to me.  Cool Grin

Can contact me here too:

i wish i could help you in attributes, but i only managed to install freebsd, freerafdius, with mysql using daloradius as a web interface for radius managment. i did not read much after that in radius documentation. and did not use the radius any more. as the project i was aiming to did not succeed.
if you read a little in documentation and used accounting option in CP + RADIUS
and used m0n0wall DHCP + Traffic Shaper to cap max speed.
i wish i could help in details but if i am not sure of something i cannot mislead you.
i think my help will be an advice to use daloradius for management this will provide some help.
best regards
