You can't really, there is no real way of doing this on a router. There could be some *nix kernel based settings which could be used, but there is no way you can shape particular IPs inbound. The only way to limit traffic is to either use QoS of rate-limiting.

Dear alexcf,
Thanks for Your reply.We have 7206VXR router having 5 ethernet interfaces.We r not using serial interface for lease line connection .We are the broadband service provider and i m using 3 ehernet interface of the router for 3 CMTS. I want to limit the traffic to to each  ethernet interface of the router.Is it possible with the router.can it be done with the help of L3 switch.If yes full configuratin with commands is required.

OK,

If its for each interface then you can just apply a straight rate-limit, but if they are vlanned then you just need to apply the rate-limit to the interface.

int fa?/?
rate-limit input <speed> <normal burst, i.e. what they would/should burst to> <maximum, so if its 2mb and is strictly 2mb/sec then set it there>
rate-limit output <speed> <normal burst, i.e. what they would/should burst to> <maximum, so if its 2mb and is strictly 2mb/sec then set it there>
!

If its a vlan then:

int vlan ????
rate-limit input <speed> <normal burst, i.e. what they would/should burst to> <maximum, so if its 2mb and is strictly 2mb/sec then set it there>
rate-limit output <speed> <normal burst, i.e. what they would/should burst to> <maximum, so if its 2mb and is strictly 2mb/sec then set it there>
!

That syntax seems to the Cisco generic.

HTH.
