I have windows xp pro, therefore iis 5.1

How do I restrict downloading speed from this when viewing at localhost site I have developed.

I want emulate different connection speeds, ie 56k modem, broadband etc just to see in actual terms how well a webpage loads.

Anyone with a product or solution?

Many thanks

You can limit bandwidth in Internet Services Manager, but I'm not sure if it's available in IIS 5.1.  Right-click your site and select Properties.  In the Properties window, check the 'Enable bandwidth throttling' box and choose the speed you want to use - ie. about 40kb/s to emulate a 56k connection.

Ah, I wasn't sure.  I don't have WinXP/IIS5.1 available to check.  I know there is software that will do this, but I haven't ever used it.  One you can look at: www.xk72.com/charles/index.html.
