  • In firewall/traffic shaper /limiter section in ur web-guy create 2 pipe with the speed u need to limit. in mask field use "destination" for both pipe.

    now in firewall/rules/lan section create a rule with following

    action–------pass
    interface ------lan
    protocol-------any(to shape all kinds of traffic)
    source-------------(single host or alias)  ip address u want to shape
    destination----------any

    now in advance features ------in/out tab click on "advance" & select 1 pipe for in field & other for out. dont use same pipe for both.

    now save & apply change.

    now in firewall/rules page put this rule to above the default rule. done for 1 ip.

    you may confused about the mask of pipes as they are both destination. dont worry they will work.
