My ISP provides free traffic between users and only charges for download
from sites outside the network
It provides a detailled counter but I want to count the traffic on my
side to see if there are any differences.
I then did that in the accounting file:
internal:COUNT - 22.214.171.124/19 - - - -
internal:COUNT - 126.96.36.199/21 - - - -
external:COUNT - ppp0 - - - -
Now when I type shorewall show internal external, I get the traffic
counted which is great.
But I'm a bit surprised with the value for external. Is it only the
traffic that didn't match the internal chain ? because the value I get
for external seems a bit strange, always lower than the internal (i'm
doing peering on the internal network), but way to big anyway (like 20M
in 10 minutes) while I'm quite sure I don't download that much..And the
difference between internal and external is almost always around 5 M.
ppp0 is the ADSL modem (1500/256), and the IPs I put are IPs that are
deemed to be internal. I get an IP from one of these ranges when I connect.
What I would like to do is count the traffic from those two IP ranges as
internal and everything else as external.
Thanks for your help.
