I run pure-ftpd, and noticed in their FAQ it list a simple script for limiting bandwidth for ftp, via tc
. So I load up the script, and run it, and love it, then I try to transfer on my local lan, and find it way too slow for my taste for interal. I can not find a way to remove it all, can someone give me alittle more help than 'read the man pages'(because I have read them several times, and do not seem to grasp how to 'remove' the rules, just add them. When I try to 'del' them I get errors about 'We have an error talking to the kernel'. Here is the script.
# Simple bandwidth limiter - <firstname.lastname@example.org>
# Change this to your link bandwidth
# (for cable modem, DSL links, etc. put the maximal bandwidth you can
# get, not the speed of a local Ethernet link)
# Change this to the bandwidth you want to allocate to FTP.
# We're talking about megabits, not megabytes, so 80Kbit is
# 10 Kilobytes/s
# Change this to your physical network device (or 'ppp0')
# Change this to the ports you assigned for passive FTP

Ok, I thought I fixed it, but evidentally not, because now nothing but http traffic works, and its sketchy at best, even after clearing the iptables rules the script added.
