DCC Send limiting in IRSSI

Hey I have a fserv script on irssi now it works well but I need to cap my dcc sends some how because it really slows down my net uploading at full speed, I installed irssi via a RPM on redhat 9 because I didn't want to install all the development tools since it's a gateway machine anyway does anyone know how I could limit DCC sends ?

thanks, Josh.

Ok, here's what I've found for you.  I couldn't find anything regarding how to limit uploads in IRSSI only, but I did find a method to limit uploads via "flags" (ie: *.mp3, *.avi etc)  This method relies on using Squid Proxy.  Squid Proxy has a feature called "delay pools".  It basically takes your file, buffers it, and only allows it to leave the network at a speed you specify.  (note: if your linux box is going to be a gateway for your network to the internet, it will delay ALL files leaving the network with the flags)

http://www.linux.org/docs/ldp/howto/Bandwidth-Limiting-HOWTO/install.html

I hope you like to compile software, because to do this, you need to compile with certain options specified.  Delay pools also works with downloads, just incase you care.  That howto will walk you through it.  This is not nearly as easy as what you were probably hoping for, but I hope it helps.
