Cisco PIX 501: Allocating bandwidth by port

I have a pix 501. I want to know how I can limit bandwidth by port on to internal side. The scenario is I have 1000K bandwidthd coming in from the ISP. I need to limit this to 200Kb on one port only and leave the other 3 ports at the full bandwidth. I am not sure if this is possible with a pix. Thanks.

You cannot do that with the PIX. Period.
You can, however setup a proxy system and use it to control bandwidth use. something like CCProxy:
Or you can get a switch like catalyst that has the ability to rate-limit the ports.
Are you still working on this? Do you need more information? Can you close out this question?
