Are there any step by step tutorials for Traffic shaping?

  • I want to do something as simple as limiting upload for specified hosts.

    Even though i have spent hours on testing, i haven't really figured out how to get this working correctly.

    Did anyone write any tutorials on this?

  • Create a hostalias for the hosts that you want to limit. Run the trafficshaper and enter this alias when asked for the "penalty" option. Then just have a look at what the wizard created for you and learn from that (unless you are already satisfied with what was created). Don't forget to reset states after changing the trafficshaper settings as old already established connections might still follow the old ruleset.

  • Wow, i think it's working now! The problem must have been that i didn't reset states previously when testing…
