Hello all,

Im using smoothwall version 1.0. I'm not sure if most people are familar with this distro. It basically a firewall built on redhat 7.3. Anyway I would like to throttle the internet speed through the firewall from a designated IP address. OR. I would like to set a download limit for them. Can it be done or do I need to use another distro? As far as I know smoothie uses ipchains and not the latter iptables if that helps anyone.

Thanks everyone.

You can add rules etc to this system,
but there are no development tools included in the distro.

The beta versions are 2.4 kernel based and use iptables.

Have a look at for a collection of tools and suggestions.

The throttling feature is only included in the Commercial version.
