Hello All;
 
   Thanks to: [grblades] we was able to get my PIX up and running.

I read somewhere on the internet the other day (But cannot find it now) About being able to go into the PIX and setting the Bandwidth Level that you want?

  Could someone please give me some information on this please?

Thank you
Wayne

No capability on the PIX to control bandwidth. The only thing close is choosing 10 or 100Mb for the interface.

Yeah, the PIX is a fairly low-end device. It does not have sophisticated QoS or other control capability. lrmoore's Comment above is a crude way to throttle the connection, but its the only option you have.

Either that, if you're going into some sort of concentrator at the other end, you might be able to throttle it there. Depends on the equipment on the other end from the PIX.

Thanks Guys.

  Right now it is set up like so:

Cable Modem <---> Cisco 501 PIX <---> Computers

So there is no other devices that can be throttled.

Thank You Guys

You're out of luck, then. No capabilities to throttle bandwidth.
You might consider a proxy such as CCProxy..

I dunno that I agree with that. An answer was provided. Just because it wasn't the answer that the Asker wanted doesn't mean its wrong.

Do not want to make no one upset with me, So I split the points.
Sorry guys, did not mean anything bad on this, I was just going through and cleaning up some questions, and this one got thrown into the pile as well.

  Take Care
