Client Session Limit Feature


#1

Hello Peplink Community,

We have a few Peplink Balance products that are balancing multiple satellite internet connections. The satellite ISP modems perform some sort of TCP acceleration. What we are finding is that too many session requests swamp the modem, and the whole connection becomes drained from a few clients, despite having available bandwidth. Do you think a feature whereby controlling the number of sessions per client is possible to implement? Would it help in this situation?

Regards,
James

Hi James,

I suggest to check on the users or the application behavior. Limit the session is not a good idea if they are legitimate.

If this is necessary, you may look for any IPS in the market which having Anomaly Detection capability.

Does the Balance 380 support blocking of bittorrent traffic, or any other advanced layer 7 traffic shaping?
