I’m curious on the suggestions approach for throttling the upload bandwidth consumed by the Dropbox service.
Ideally, I’d like to use QoS/CoS priority so that I’m treating dropbox uploads as a “low-class upload scavenger”, where any other upload request takes precedence. but I’m not sure how to do that…
The approach I’m considering with my PepLink 20
Add Rule: Dropbox UP
- Network | Outbound Policy | add Rule
- Source: 192.168.1.0/24
- Destination: 126.96.36.199/22 (found dropbox IP block online somewhere)
- protocol: ANY
- Algorithm: Priority ( WAN’s arranged with only 1 WAN – eg: restrict them to using JUST one ISP so we dont flood all our upload capacity )
is this the right approach?
or should I be looking into QoS/CoS options? or a diff router/model with a balancing algorithm that supports this “scavenger” concept.
