I want to do bandwidth shaping using dummynet. I want the box to act as
a bridge only and no layer-3 filtering. To that effect, I have the
following parameters in /etc/sysctl.conf:,rl0

My first question is that does this ensure that packets are processed at the bridge level and not at layer-3? I am a bit confused between these two parameters:, and

What is the effect of each specifically?

Still need to know this.

Two is that I am trying to allocate different bandwidth limits for: 1. Internet to home-network-A (in and out) - 128Kbps 2. Home-network-B to Home-Network-A (in and out) - 1Mbps

So I do:
ipfw -f flush
ipfw add pipe 1 ip from any to Network-A
ipfw add pipe 2 ip from Network-B to Network-A
ipfw pipe 1 config bw 128Kbit/s queue 10
ipfw pipe 2 config bw 1000Kbit/s queue 10

But I find that the effective limit is 128Kbps only for all transfers!!
Why isn't the traffic between Network-A and B put in pipe-2?

Sorry, stupid question. I realised that the packets enters a pipe as soon as one matches it profile and does not go thru the whole rule-base before entering a pipe. So just changed precedence. Works now.
