    n00b question: is it possible to add all ip classes of a country to the routing table to be able to do bandwidth limiting per country?
    thank you

    I think not. Even if you could summarize the IPs of a country, it is not certain that it will stay the same for a long time.

    i have the following configuration


    ________
    /
    /
    +
    + /
    | | /

    +
    + +
    +
    + /
    +
    + | vlan1 | | vlan1 | /
    | | | | | | |
    | Local networks +----+ Zeroshell | | ISP +--+ Internet cloud
    | | | | | | |
    +
    + | vlan2 | | vlan2 |
    +

    on vlan1 is routed the traffic to romania
    on vlan2 is routed all the other traffic
    i use freebsd and i want to use zeroshell
    i don’t know how to push the traffic to romanian ip’s thru vlan1

    do you think that by using the following example will work?

    echo 1 romania >> /etc/iproute2/rt_tables
    ip route add default via x.x.x.x dev vlan1 table romania

    ip rule add from a.a.a.a/24 table romania
    ip rule add from b.b.b.b/24 table romania
    ...

    where x.x.x.x is the gateway from my provider and a.a.a.a/24, b.b.b.b/24 etc are the ip classes from romania

    thank you

    Well if you know the prefixes you can add them easily. Go to Network -> Router and Add a Static Route. Select a network with its mask and an interface instead of an IP.

    so, it’s better to use the “main” routing table instead of two routing tables

    i thought that because of the two vlan ips with the same gateway i should have two routing tables

    anyway, thanks for the quick reply

    also, do you know how to make this changes permanent?
    and what about performance? i want to add about 5000 static routes via dev vlan1

    Once changes are saved, they become permanent.
    I don’t think there will be a performance issue, however you could aggregate some /24 prefixes to /23 or /22
