Bandwidth management in a linux bridge


I have setup up a linux bridge with iptables firewall. The bridge has three LAN cards, one for internet, second for NAT for private network and third for DMZ section for machines having public IPs. Internet and DMZ interfaces are connected to the bridge. I currently have 256kbps bandwidth from which I want to provide 64kbps for DMZ section and rest to my internal NAT computers. If the NAT section uses less the bandwidth shall be sent to DMZ one and vice-versa.

Is there any way HTB can handle two interfaces?

Thanks and regards

Hope to get help from u.

Lee's here, actually I'm not sending to you to help by hopefully can get help from you.

Can I know what type of internet connection you are running? Currently I myself use pppoe over adsl connection and try to build the bridge firewall using fedora linux but I have a lot of problems and can't set it up, can you plz help me and give some guides if u r using pppoe as well. Since I want to build bridge, my eth0(attach to dsl modem) and eth1 (connect to internal lan) must run in promisc mode and without ip assigned. It raise problems for me since I can't dial my dsl modem at all. I have setup a bridge interface as well which with ip assigned but it seems I can't get internet connection from internal lan since I can't dial to my isp since I'm using dynamic ip. Can you give some hint plz. I really need helps.
