2.Set up the limit for mobile traffic (in megabytes or gigabytes). You can set a duration period for the limit: a day, a week or a month.

3.If necessary, specify the amount of traffic that was already used since the selected limitation period has started:

If you have selected a day as the limitation period, it begins at 00:00 of the current day.

If you have selected a week as the limitation period, it begins at 00:00 of the current day.

If you have selected a month as the limitation period, it begins at 00:00 of the first day of the current calendar month.

When the mobile Internet limit is enabled, a graph showing the amount of remaining traffic appears on the Limit tab of the firewall configuration screen. The specified limit and the countdown are shown next to the graph (see Figure 27).
