limiting concurrent TCP sessions from a single IP

I want to limit the no. of TCP connections an IP of the internel network can have with any resource(Such as FTP, HTTP....) on the Internet. Actually i don't want the clients to use download managers with 10 threads. If i want to limit these threads by limiting the number of TCP connections from a single IP to a single particular resource on the Internet, how would that be possible? Ofcourse the clients are free to access different resources such as different FTP servers etc, but the connections should not exceed a specified limit with a single FTP. Thanks!
