FTP server + reverse lookup

I have two issues, which i have to solve.
First of all, i need to build a ftp server (probably using proftpd). Of course it's not hard, but i need to shape the traffic to each LAN user in the Let a say, the's download speed is 100 kB/s and the upload speed is 150 kB/s. I can limit the bandwidth to whole lan, but i need to limit the bandwidth to separate users. If you have any ideas - feel free to spread them out
The second issue is that, the traffic shaper (in the gateway) is limiting the bandwidth when i connect to the ftp (just testing with this one). When i connect to it using its lan ip adress - then everything's fine, but when i connect using the domain - then the gateway limits the bandwidth. So, what to do, that when a user from lan types in his address field the it would redirect to 192.168.x.x.
So if you didn't understand what i need, just ask. Thanks in advance.

Check out TransferRate directive when using proftpd. Documentation on the site is a little bit out of date, but you may try this as an example:
