Well I can answer my own question this time.
I took a closer look at some of the documentation and found out how to fix my problem.
I found out that configuration files for CBQ should be created in the /etc/sysconfig/cbq directory.
They are named like this
| |______name of the limiter file
|__id number each configuration file should be different
I created a test file and limited bandwidth for VNC (port 5900) to test the config.
DEVICE=eth0,10Mbit,1Mbit #Options for the NIC
RATE=1Kbit #How much bandwidth VNC gets.. ouch
PRIO=5 #The priority this shaper has over others
RULE=:5900,:5900 #This rule is telling CBQ to limit the bandwidth
#from any address on port 5900 to any
#address on port 5900
All I had to do when I saved my configuration file was give the Command to start CBQ which is /sbin/cbq start
and it was working.
I was able to connect through the router/shaper to a machine on the other side with VNC but it was soooooo.... sloooow.
I am going to try and put it into its real place tomorrow and see how it works out.
I hope this helps someone else. I am still checking it out to find out what else I can use.
Happy New Year
