Question Bandwith Restrictions with vsftpd

I run an http and an ftp server off of my server at home, mostly for me and a few friends. What i need to do though is to put in some sort of bandwith restriction so when they log on and download files, it doesnt suck up all of my availible bandwith.

vsftpd has a bandwith restriction feature, but it restricts it per download, not a max total of. What i need is a method so my ftp server will upload a maximum of 50k/bs regardless of how many files are being downloaded.

If there is a program to do this, im all ears.

Im running Redhat 9. Thanks

Semper Fi,

What you need to do is look for 'traffic shapers'. Sorry, I don't have a recommendation 'cause I've never used one but I'm sure google will be your friend.
