How to define a new bandwidth control rule to UNIBOX?

UNIBOX allows administrators to define Bandwidth Control rules. A Bandwidth Control rule will govern the bandwidth rates for user traffic.

The Bandwidth Control rule can be defined for a specific application, port or client. An application specific rule will control the bandwidth rate for all the data transmitted by the given application. Similarly the port specific rule will control the bandwidth rate for traffic following through specific port.

Administrators can also define custom rule in which they can specify the source and destination IP addresses along with specific port numbers. This allows administrators to fine tune the Bandwidth Control rules for each client, if required.
