Linux Networking question

My understanding is that TCP Shaping and pacing has been added to Slackware 2.0.31.  Does anyone know how to configure it?

AFAIK, the shaper device is available only in 2.1.xx kernels.

There are at least three different places in the 2.0.31 docs that say that Shaping/Pacing is included, but the docs have not been done, as well as many postings to the linux news groups.  saying the same.

I assume you are talking about TCP Traffic Shaping?

Are you aware of the program you must also get somewhere on the net for said shaping?  (asking in case your documentation does not mention it)....If so then do you have it?...

My understanding is that it has been integrated into the kernel.  It is now a compile option.

Only to get it running, and support it, you still need the prog.  Just like withmany other things in kernels, I mean you can compile for your hearts content to get Networking, but you still have to have Net-Tools, which has route, netconfig, ifconfig, etc.

I can find out where to get that .tar.gz if you haven't got it in docs...But I'd have to do that later, I'm using win95 just now, so I can't view my Linux docs...

The NET-2 and NET-3 packages come with the Slackware distribution, so the answer is yes, they are installed.  But the HOWTO's and MAN pages say, TO DO - TCP shaping, so the MAN pages are not there.
