Bandwidth limit for specific domain

Post by MsVibe » August 15th, 2019, 8:13 pm

I would like to set a bandwidth limit using QoS for ssl traffic from a specific domain (TV streaming site).

Is that possible, and how?

You cannot limit a Domain because the firewall only knows IP Addresses.

Also the most streaming sites not host the streams. They came from many different servers. Often from the large Content Delivery Networks like Akamai or Amazon.

Thank you for your information. Yes, the sites use Akamai.net

Is it possible instead to apply QoS based on the IP of the streaming devices. Let's say a chromecast with ip x.x.x.x how is that done?

Best regards
