ipfw rules plus dummynet should be able to do what you want. ipfw can filter on the uid or gid of the process sending/receiving the packet, so this should cause all non-root packets to get filtered through dummynet pipe 1 (which you could configure to run at 90% of your true capacity): ipfw add 400 skipto 402 ip from any to any uid root ipfw add 401 pipe 1 ip from any to any Hopefully ipfw will soon get the ability to use ALTQ which was recently merged into -current, so you can do some more advanced limiting. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
