    Dear Tecmint admins,

    I configured firewalld with zone work and added sources (our internal/external IP address) , restarted services , in IFTOP I can see different (strange) IP(DNS) connections . how I can disable this traffic/connection please ? Thank you .

  3. Abdou says:

    Hi Ravi , please I have a question, do you think that the traffic could be applied for a specific website ? for example, the user have 500 Kb/s for the download and 300Kb/s for the upload when he connect to ( for exple) , and have the full speed when he connect to other websites ?

      Dear Vicky,

      The IfTop only monitors bandwidth it doesn’t provide any restriction module. If you want to restrict or specify bandwidth limit to specific user or website use Proxy.
