Limiting Bandwidth On Internet When Incoming/Outgoing Call

I am doing a little research before I start creating a Linux server and gateway. I have a Internet phone through USA DataNet and if one of the client computers on the network is hogging bandwidth, then the phone call gets distorted. Wondering if there would be a way to limit the bandwidth to the clients when there is an incoming or outgoing call and how would I go about doing it? And also, does anyone know what port the phone would use, so to port farward it?

yes, this is called "traffic shaping"


you can give priority to packets for the VOIP phone....

this is quite easy with something like the "m0n0wall" distro i believe....

I've never done it myself..... check this out:

hope this helps to get you started at least
