    Hi all,

    I just need to know if I make something wrong or if it’s normal?

    I try configuring captive portal with bandwidth limit per user but if I male a test with http://www.speedtest.net, it say that I’m not limited…?

    I’ve followed this: https://www.zeroshell.org/radius-accounting/

    It say that’s not implemented in version 1.06 is it for the actual version?

    Thanx all

    Same problem with last version. Someone can fix that?

    I believe this is not implemented, as stated on the manual.
    Probably a forgotten part of this project.
    Would be nice to have it done. Would allow me to use the integrated captive portal of ZS. Mobile devices nowadays hunt so much for bandwidth that this is a very important feature to enable.

    Connection Limits
    For each class of accounting is possible to define an upper limit in Megabytes for the traffic generated and the maximum number of hours or fractions of hours for which the user can remain connected. When the user exceeds at least one of the two limits is automatically disconnected and no longer allowed to connect until the counters are not reset. Note that the bandwidth limit in Megabytes per second has not yet been implemented in the current version of Zeroshell (1.0.beta16).

    I just tried with with v3.8.2 and it is not limiting.

    Kudos to Fulvio for putting this project together by the way, I keep coming back to ZS after trying other solutions.

    at the end…was this ever implemented ?. i come back every once in while to Zeroshell but i never been able to make this work. The funny thing is that even Zerotruth have a “shaper” option and a presumably capacity of “QoS”‘s the users according to the predefined classes but i guess that all is just text at the front with nothing really connecting stuff in the back code.

    dont get me wrong. Im a huge fan of ZS and Fulvio’s work, but sincerely speaking the quality of the forum have decrease over the years, the documentation is generaly outdated and they are too few gurus left to guide the confused. Too many topics without answers.

    In this particular matter (bw limitation per user) the only readable stuff in the forums are questions about why it doesnt work and the only formal doc in the main page (ttps://www.zeroshell.org/radius-accounting/) only declares the limitation in the 1.0 version…7 years have passed from that (at least)

    so…if its not planned to include this functionality you should definitely remove the forms already of the accounting classes for future versions, teach users of the comunity a positively way to make this work or simply publish a declaration that you will not do any more efforts with in this particular issue.

    we know ZS have been made by Fulvio with love for the community but, in my opinion, this involves a long term commitment that its not cheap or easy to sustain (and that must be respected), but is a cross that must be carried for all who starts these kind of projects…and the burden of that cross is the forums, the documentation, and the ability to not create expectations of functionalities than only have a nice frontend but nothing on the back (nothing functional or well documented at least)

    best regards to all. sorry if my english is a little rusty.

    i hope ill have some clearance at last about this topic.

    after a late night survey, i found out that only Zerotruth 3.0 can efecively limit bandwidht. The 4.0 version for raspberry doesnt work (in this matter at least). I made a fresh install of ZS 3.9.3 on a VM with a new zerotruth installation and everything went well.

    Still, from the ZS interace the bw limitation per user is not working even in the latest versions, so I still stand by my previous post
