Re: Bell Usage Meter counting LAN data?

Having LAN traffic go out to the Internet and back violates basic routing.

First, LAN uses rfc1918 addresses that would not route on the Internet.

Second, the net mask for the devices on the LAN would not send traffic to the default route since the devices all belong to the same local subnet.

Third, if your traffic went UP to the Internet and back DOWN to you machine then you would see 5gb upload and 5gb download, not 5gb download and less than 1gb upload.

Take your tinfoil hat off, get some sunlight and breath in the fresh air!
