Review of TrafficFilter: A Quota Enforcement Tool for ISA Server

 

A Russian Programmer has developed a filter for ISA Server which can restrict users Internet access based on MB/KB. TrafficFilter – is a server-based filtering solution that provides customizable control of Internet access. It enables management to block or allow workers’ access to Internet, based on user bandwidth quota policy. TrafficFilter assigns a Bandwidth Quota on a per-user basis.

For example: user ‘John’ is allowed to download 500 MB a month, and after this he is denied access to the Internet. User ‘Jane’ is assigned a quote of 10 MB per-day; if she goes over 10 MB that day, she is denied further access to the Web Proxy service.

Key features:

  • Quota policies based on bandwidth and time per user
  • Active Directory Support – native or mixed
  • Real-Time Monitoring

The Real-Time Monitoring feature allows you to monitor current quota usage. It can be accessed by a web browser from anywhere in the network. Simply load up Explorer and type in http://traffic.isa. Information about all users allow only to administrators, “user can see only own quota usage information”.

Administrators can create custom message for users about exceeded the limit

  • Easy installation

This filter can be very useful for Cyber Cafe’s, Cable.Net, Colleges, Corporations, and many others.

HOW TO USE:

In order to use this filter, All Users must be authenticated via Outbound Web Requests Listener. Download Traffic Filter from the following link, Run setup.

Now stop/start the Web Proxy service. Go to Start => Programs => Tfilter => tfilter. Here you can set up download/upload limit to specific users/groups.

Please let us know about your experience regarding this web filter.
