We have a user that likes to download movies with torrents in our office and it just kills the overall network performance. Unfortunately we need this user and don't want to confront him directly about this so we're looking at options to limit how much his user account, computer, or IP uses as far as bandwidth. I've done some Google searches and surprisingly didn't find anything that could help. Is this not possible with an AD policy?
I don't want to touch our router, I don't want to confront him, I don't want to use QoS (it's currently disabled everywhere), I don't want to use a 3rd party app. Best case scenario is I can setup an AD policy.
Can anyone give me any tips or point me in the right direction? You would think in this day and age there is something built into the Windows server platform to do this very easily.
BTW we're using Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2.
Thank you very much for your time, ladies and gentlemen.
