I'm searching for a program which will administer my tpc / ip connection! E. g. I want to login in by ssh while theres a ftp connection, then i should be able to set the ssh connection priority that high, so i can do something, although theres a ftp download... Hope you got the idea, any suggestions for programs are cheerfully appreciated!

hmm... you should be able to connect multiple times on different ports to a linux box. or are you trying to do a secure ftp connection? a program that will do that is called SecureFX its shareware tho.

You want to prioritize your traffic.  There are several ways of doing it, the most popular is to use a combination of iptables and the 'tc' and 'ip' commands.  Look for CBQ scripts on the internet, or, your distribution may come with a traffic shaper configuration tool or example scripts.
