I am using FreeBSD 5.2.1-RC + IPFW2 + DUMMYNET to do traffic shaping.
This works well for my setup.
I have the following configuration:
The machine has 2 NIC's, xl0, dc0. The kernel is configured to do bridging. The bridged
packets is passed to IPFW (net.link.ether.bridge.ipfw=1).
I shape traffic this way: The bridge is setup between a router and an internal mail server. I am limiting bandwith using the following rules: pipe 1 config bw 16KBytes/s pipe 2 config bw 12KBytes/s
add pipe 1 tcp from any to any 25 (limit incoming traffic towards smtp) add pipe 2 tcp from any 110 to any (limit outgoing traffic from pop3)
Yesterday, while browsing through Absolute BSD by Michael Lucas I read an interesting part:
You cannot shape incoming traffic the way that I do at the moment.
Now, my question: How can I limit the incoming traffic towards my smtp server properly?
Any advice would be apreciated.
