Rate limit specific traffic

Hi,

I was wondering if there is a way to rate limit http, https and ftp traffic on a Cisco 2811 (running advanced ip services)?

Essentially the connection (bandwidth) is billed on the 95th percentile and users are downloading crap from the internet which is creating higher usage and I want to limit their download speed, whilst allowing the other applications (VPN, VoIP & RDP) un-restricted access.

Thanks

You do not want to rate-limit, you are better off shaping traffic:

1Mbps traffic shape
access-list 100 permit tcp any eq 80 any
access-list 100 permit tcp any eq 443 any
access-list 100 permit tcp any eq 21 any

interface fast0/0
traffic-shape group 100 1000000 125000 125000

Generic Traffic Shaping is the simplest method IMHO.
match on an access-list and rate limit.
I recommend that your acl includes the return download traffic as well as the sources.
