Guys, i've been searching on the list but didn't find a good post about this
(sorry, but i'm starting with this serious routing/firewalling servers).
What is the best way to make the traffic this way:
If only 1 client using network, have full bandwidth
More than 1, balance traffic to let everyone have a good connection, for
example, if anyone is downloading a file, the others have a good rate be
using voip, browsing sites, sending e-mails... and that one downloading the
file doesn't cut the connection to the others.
Thank you very much for your help guys.
