Hi all experts,

Is it possible that I can simulate a 2Meg link between 2 routers?
Not really necessary through serial link, as long as I can have the connection fix at 2 meg will do.

Many thanks.

If you know the pin out, you can create a cross pin cable and connect the two.  Then rate limit the port on both sides.

However if all you want to do is simulate a 2 Meg connection (bits or bytes) you can get something like squid (http:\\www.squid-cache.com) as a proxy server and have it limit though put to 2 meb per second.  This assumes you are doing HTTP or HTTPS.

Hi giltjr, thanks for input. I do have the DTE-DTE (dunno what it is called, maybe serial crosscable) serial cable. And,  I just came across the rate limit command, but I dont actually understand how it work.

I just want to simulate AD replication across a 2 Meg lease line.

What type of router is it?  Brand, model and firmware/OS level.

Clock rate should reduce the physical speed.

You should be able to use the clock rate and set it to 2000000 to limit it to 2Mbps.
