IP bandwidth management

I'm trying to setup a linux or a bsd box that will limit bandwidth based on source and Destination IP. I'm sharing my T-1 connection with a few clients who all have static IP's. I would like to have control over there upload and download bandwidth based on the IP address I assign them. For example

Code: = 30KBs Down/ 30KBs Up = 1Mbs Down/ 30KBs Up
Finer grain control would be nice, port speed per IP or bustable speed would all be pluses.

Anyone have any suggestions or sites I could check out? I would prefer a project with a web interface for management but I'm not worried about having to use config files if it is needed.

I'm not sure if it supports this complex of bandwidth management, but cbq.init is a good place to begin with bandwidth management.

If you'd rather get a bit more hands on, definitely look into the Linux Advanced Routing & Traffic Control HOWTO. They cover traffic control in extremely great detail. In particular, take a look at the section on CBQ. If that gets too tricky [which it most certainly will], take a look at the Heirarchial Token Bucket [HTB]. It is widely regarded as a much simpler version of CBQ.

Let me know if there's anything else I can help with!
