Hi

Is it possible to restrict bandwidth to certain Samba shares?

I have some shares that users of a VPN access, and I don't want them hogging the bandwidth on our leased line when transferring files.

Not necessarily a samba thing... you could perhaps look into trafficshaping/limiting/QoS/whatchamacallit:-) for your VPN instead.
What you have available is highly dependant on the network infrastructure/components.
Have a look at https://sourceforge.net/projects/cbqinit and https://sourceforge.net/projects/htbinit ...

Glenn already gave you the correct answer. If you want some information before you start to work with either one of these projects, check out the Advanced Routing HOWTO, it has some information about traffic shaping, and it may also help to decide with of the two is better suited for you.
