Release Notes: This release has been optimized and tested for stability. It has been stress tested on P4 systems with 60 megabits of traffic. It is also now totally free with a two hour time limit. New features include the addition of the User limit utility into the GUI (which was previously command line only). This utility allows users to set bandwidth byte total limits for users over an hour, day, or month. It will automatically perform administrator-defined actions should a user exceed their total byte limit.
Release Notes: This release incorporates systemwide connection limits into the CD GUI. This allows users to protect their network from many types of worms that hijack computers and send storms of traffic. With a single command, a systemwide connection limit can be set which applies to all hosts, external or internal to your network. If any host starts sending large numbers of messages, it will automatically be shut down. This release also has the latest bugfixes up through the 8.24 GPL release.
Release Notes: This release introduces a commercial quality bandwidth metering utility that can be activated from the GUI. It monitors accumulated bandwidth by hour, day, or month for users you select. It allows you to automatically take action when a user exceeds bandwidth; you can restrict, send email, etc. Also in this release is the hard limit feature (non-burstable bandwidth limits). This new limit capability augments the burstable limit, and you can have up to 4000 without impacting the CPU.
Release Notes: This release increases the capacity, allowing it to track and shape up to 5000 simultaneous connections. Also, it adds password protection to the Web UI, a key mechanism for users to turn the demo into a commercial version, the ability to limit connections per user with a single rule, and a blanket connection limit for denial of service prevention.
Release Notes: This release includes support for Intel Pro 10/100/1000 LAN cards. The bootable CD distribution will now run on almost all modern computer systems with built in LAN cards. The Ethereal packet sniffing utility has been added, as well as the ability to run Linux commands directly from the GUI admin screen.
Release Notes: This release is available as a free bootable demo CD. New features include a tab on the GUI that allows you to instantly snapshot applications such as Bearshare and Kazaa and see who is using them and how much bandwidth they are using. There is a fix for the MAC address shaping. Also for MAC addresses, a tab on the GUI has been added to see exactly what MAC addresses are active and the IP address associated with each MAC address.
Release Notes: It is no longer necessary to understand any Linux syntax to start up and use the Demo CD. The Web server that supports the GUI will now start automatically just by booting the CD. The firewall rules may now be easily set up and saved from the GUI. This makes the bootable demo CD something that "non-Linux-trained" network administrators can try out in a few minutes without any Linux knowledge.
Release Notes: A free bootable demo CD of Linux Bandwidth Arbitrator (LBA) has been released. This release has completely revised GUI screens, integrated firewall rules, reporting tools, connection limits, and all the shaping control capability of the full GPL version. The demo makes it possible to trial the Linux Bandwidth Arbitrator in a few minutes, on any sized network. Note that it is time restricted to run for 48 hours.
Release Notes: This release provides uplink and downlink control for MAC address shaping. It is built on the Arbitrator 6.31 GPL base (kernel) which was developed to correct some instability with some LAN cards. It also has GUI enhancements.
Release Notes: This release provides a GUI administration for shaping traffic by MAC address and the ability to set connection limits coming into a server for denial of service protection. It also integrates the CD distribution with the 6.2 GPL release which has bugfixes to improve Kazaa and Gnutella shaping accuracy.
