The vast majority of people out there have asymmetrical bandwidth
limiting needs - that is, they have a pipe to the Internet and
have a lot more data coming from the Internet to them, than data
going from them to the Internet.  Their desire is to somehow make
it so that certain kinds of incoming data meeting certain criteria
are limited.  Their problem is that since they don't have control of
the end sending the data to them, they can't do this.


but you ROUGHLY can do this with ipfw.
by limiting at your end - the other end will slow down.

but of course in case of say ping flood or similar things you can't
