How to limit download speed on Cisco ASA 5505 or ASA 5510

Hi there!
I've a internet connection of 10Mbps.
i want to limit one of the internal hosts, with IP 10.1.1.18 to disallow downloading with more that 3Mbps, or (384KB/s).
How can i do this?
Regards!

How to limit download speed on Cisco ASA 5505 or ASA 5510

Hi,

You would need to apply a service-policy to police the bandwidth to that user. As you will most likely be natting to the internet, you will need to apply this policy to the inside interface attaching to the user host. You would need to rely on windowing af the PC connection also to ensure the stream is actually slowed absolute. By this I mean that the download has already hit the ASA by the time we want to slow it down, so if its not a TCP connection, you may find that the ASA will need to buffer the rest of the exceeding traffic. Unlike routers, the ASA does not drop exceeds, it throttles.

access-list USER1 extended permit ip host 10.1.1.18 any

class-map USER1

     match access-list USER1

policy-map Police-User1

     class USER1

          police output 3000000

    

Service-policy Police-User1 interface inside
