is it possible to limit the download/upload speed per user ?
Windows Server 2012

i mean to limit what the user can download and upload not in iis but in the server it self; as like for a RDP user or just a windows user

example :
Administrator : Unlimited/Unlimited
User1 : 5mbps/2mbps
User2 : 10mbps/2mbps

  • Are you trying to configure this at a domain controller? You need to provide more information about your environment.

  • @bwDraco no it's not related to iis, i mean to limit what a user can download and upload not in iis but in the server it self; as like for a RDP user or just a windows user Feb 16 '16 at 13:43
  • I'm finding this rather hard to understand. Are you trying to throttle the Internet connection speed on the server itself or on domain-joined machines?

  • @bwDraco on the server itself, but every user should have a custom limit Feb 16 '16 at 13:46

On Windows Server 2012 you can limit bandwidth trough QoS mechanism, however there's no direct way to do it per user.

If you can ensure a specific user will always have the same IP(s) (trough fixed IP or dhcp reservation, provide a user always use the same machine), then you can define QoS policy per IP.

However this doesn't scale well with the number of users.
