Operating systems
Version 7, 8

What To Do

Inside the Definitions » Services create a new Service Group with Members ‘GRE’ and ‘PPTP’

Inside Network Security » Quality of Service (QoS) we activate the External interface and set it up according our conditions. For me this looks like this:

Next step is to create three ‘Traffic Selectors’ for PPTP Traffic called ‘PPTP-Out’, ‘PPTP-In’ and PPTP:

Then create a new “Bandwidth Pool” on your External Interface which actually specifies the “upper bandwidth limit” in kbit/s. This way I have limited the PPTP traffic to a maximum of 100 kbit/s 

Select ‘PPTP’, ‘PPTP-In’ and ‘PPTP-Out’ as Traffic Selector.
