  • limiting incoming traffic in ASA 5510

    Hi,

    I have Exchange server behind ASA 5510, internet bandwidth is 2/2 Mbps.

    I noticed that all incoming SMTP traffic is choking all the bandwidth.

    Can I limit incoming traffic to 1 Mbps (50%)?

    I think rate-limit option is just for outbound traffic!

    Thanks,
    Zia

      Hi

      Thanks for your response Dumber,

      The problem is shaping/policing work for outbound traffic, I need to limit incoming traffic.

      Thanks

        Are you sure?

        policy-map NAME
        class NAME
        police [input | output]

        seems to support it both ways.

          This article says it is for outbound traffic, but you are right, command is for incoming/outgoing traffic.

            No that's for shaping, not for policing...
