You can limit bandwidth either by using iptables --limit, or take a look at shaperd:

I use squid running on an openBSD box, but Squid could be easily implemented on a Linux box as well.  Coupled with SARG, it provides me a detailed report of every website visited as well as bandwidth usage by user.  I'm not entirely sure, as I've had no need for the feature, but I'm sure it also allows bandwidth restrictions.

If you want to limit only the bandwith by interface, you can use a rpm called "shapecfg".

However, if want to manage your bandwith by ToS, IP source, IP dest and much more... you have to use the iproute+tc rpm.

You can read about it at:

a easy way for bandwitdh is CBQ

you must creat a file in /etc/sysconfig/cbq folder
2 file for any ip,a for send and a for receive
a example file is in it folder

then
you must start cbq with   cbq start   and stop it wtih    cbq stop


good luck
bye
