Multi Wan load balancer (pfsense or ClearOS or what? )

Hi All,

I have recently installed a pfsense.
What i wanted was to load balance two wan links, with limiting bandwidth for selected urls or protocols (youtube or streaming)
pfsense have the excelent load balancing features with failover.
But limiting the bandwidth for urls seems not possible.
are there any products thet are better than pfsense for my requirement?
or is there a way to limit bandwidth usage for urls on pfsense (i tried traffic shaping also - but it was not success)?
Currently i'm trying ClearOS.

I suppose you could use clearOS, another alternative would be Untangled or Zentyal, but these unfortunately do not provide a "Great" system in my opinion. They are good but for all the really nice things you have to get a subscription. That is what I do not like. You may also want to try Vyatta community edition. It appears not to have the nice Graphic stuff and you will need to use CLI, but it appears to be pretty solid and would be my first choice over ClearOS and Untangled.

I don't know if this will work in all cases but see if it can be done.

I don't know all the pay features untangle has now. They may be able to do with too.
