Question Restrict data transfer on individual ports


I'm not sure if this is possible at all - I haven't been able to find anything about it,

But is it possible to restrict the amount of data that can be transferred over an individual port?

for example if I have a 100Mbit/s server and wanted to restrict all traffic on port 8000 to 10Mbit/s, can that be done?

Thanks for reading hope someone can help.

Yes it is.

The term is "traffic shaping", lotsa threads about that on LQ.

OK, I might need some help with this if someone doesn't mind. I did quite a bit of searching and found this:

http://www.netfilter.org/documentati...-3.html#ss3.13

The problem is that the command shown there doesn't work, I get the following error:

# iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 80 -m quota --quota 52428800 -j ACCEPT
iptables v1.2.11: Couldn't load match `quota':/lib/iptables/libipt_quota.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Try `iptables -h' or 'iptables --help' for more information.


anyone know how to get around this? Maybe there is something else that needs installing?

Thanks.
