Debian Linux limiting bandwidth


I have debian gateway and 15 workstations. Is there a way to divide or limit bandwidth for my lan, apache and vsftpd? Is that setup can be done using shorewall?

Thank you.

Apache (mod_bandwidth) and VSFTP (anon_max_rate / local_max_rate) have builtin support for bandwidth management
if you need to shape down your lan speed have a look at the Linux Advanced Routing & Traffic Control (tc & triends)

Hi Luxana,

When I start shaper it has an error looking for a config file.

: no configuration files found in /etc/shaper/.
