Traffic Shaping ??


Hi !

I have got a Linuxrouter adapted from the LRP (LinuxRouterProject, www.linuxrouter.org) !

This router was setup by a friend of mine (Debian with
Samba,ftp, firewallrules, ftp server and so on).
Plz be patient wth my small linux knowledge. *hr*

I usually make ftp accounts with an adduser script that
creates a directory which is restricted to its ftpuser.

My problem now is that a connected ftpuser uses my
whole upstream (16 kb) and that my own downloads lag
out. I guess thats because there is no more bandwidth
to respond enough packets to hold up the download speed
at topspeed.

I heared about Traffic Shaping and looked up a few sites
over a search at google.com but its really strange for me
to understand these theoretic texts.


Sorry for my poor english and thnx for any reply

You might want to read the Advanced Routing HOWTO as this coveres band width limiting IIRC. To get it working you'll need to be running a 2.4 kernel BTW...

cheers

Unhappy thnx



well, thats it ....

i found this howto also with google but while i checked
the topics i knew it would be getting hard too manage
the simple traffic shaping on port 21 because of the different
cases : on the one hand the upstream has to bee restricted
on that port and on the other hand it has to be unrestricted
for the downloads !

how can i distinguish betwenn these cases ?

do you know how much data a ftp download at 40-60 kb
needs from the upstream to response a proper arrival of
the incoming packets ??




maybe this whole shaping thing won´t help because 16 kb
is just too less (arrrrgh dsl in germany realy sux with this upstream).....



Linux is like studing computer science
