Hi,

is it possible to do a sort of bandwidth management on a cisco 2600 router?

Let me explain. I have 2 host behind a 2600 router (connected via the ethernet adaptor). The other side of the router is a WAN link serial leased line (128k).
Is it possible to let ftp traffic to one host with a bandwidth limitation of 80k and the other host 48k of maximum ftp traffic.

Hope you understand what i mean :)

Kind regards

You can use Generic Traffic Shaping to rate-limit based on source IP address

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/software/ios121/121cgcr/qos_c/qcprt4/qcdgts.htm


example:

access-list 101 permit host <host1 IP> any eq ftp
access-list 102 permit host <host2 IP> any eq ftp

interface ether 0/0
 traffic-shape group 101 80000
 traffic-shape group 102 48000

Hi thx for the fast reply.

In the cisco document they say the following:

"It is only supported on generic routing encapsulation (GRE) tunnel interfaces"

Do i have to do something special for that?

It is not supported on ISDN. (i don't need it right now, but in the future maybe). Is there an other way to do it on ISDN?

Since u say u have two hosts connected to the router , u can very well define the bandwidth at the WAN port & ethernet port  using BANDWIDTH command respectively . It should work well. Traffic shaping is also  when u hv too many hosts on the subnet & thereby control the BW for every IP.

Traffic shaping can be applied to any interface not just a GRE tunnel.

The bandwidth statement on an interface does absolutely nothing to limit the bandwidth. It is used exclusively by internal system processes and by external network management systems as a measure of what the bandwidth should be.

What version IOS are you running?

IOS 12.1 ip feature pack.

I'll have a test with traffic shaping over isdn, and if it works i'll accept your answer with pleasure :)

You still put the traffic shaping on the internal Ethernet interface to limit the traffic from that interface across the WAN regardless of whether or not the WAN interface is ISDN, PPP, frame-relay, whatever..
