Ah, good to know, thanks. I am still curious about the non-NAT fairness by internal IP addresses only performance, as far as I understand that is the main request/use case people seem to have. We have been offering basically per-flow fairness for some time now (and that works mostly well), but it leaves people wishing for a tool to restrict the pain under-controlled bit-torrenting can have on all users of a given home network…
