Iptables Bandwith Limit


Hey all, I route a broadband line throughout my house. My sister is a WinMX and VoiceChat fan and she eats up my limited upload that my game server requires. Is there a comand in Iptables to set a given IP with a bandwith limit?

yeah but it is a real pain to use and it will kill your sisters chat, better off getting over the gaming thing and do something more constructive life open source development.

have a look at this site ... It uses QoS via HTB, and it's quite easy to configure. You just need to have iproute2 and tc install on your system

Hi,
Yes the link seems to be broken for the moment but I assume that's the good site...
So QoS means Quality of Service and is used to differentiate service. For example FTP is a service which takes the max bandwidth it can, so thanks QoS you can tell that FTP will be allowed to only use 50Kb/s instead of 512Kb/s... You can also do such things based on IP instead of ports
If HTB projects is still dead on sourceforge, have a look at CBQ (https://sourceforge.net/projects/cbqinit )... it's the same philosophy. But it's based on another algorithm, less precise with rate and so less efficient with high rate
