Hello! I've just subscribed to this list and i hope that someone can
I have a computer where i have a Redhat 7.3 box with the following
- Pentium MMX 233Mhz, 64 MB RAM 100Mhz., two 2.1 GB HDDs, 10 Mbps Lan
card and an external US Robotics 56K analog modem.
My eth0 interface has a private IP address that belongs to the class C
192.168.1.x network and the ppp0 interface dials an ISP service phone to
connect to the internet.
I use this computer to share the Dial-Up internet service with another 8
computers, i use squid 2.4 Stable 6 as a proxy and i´ve just allowed
SMTP and POP3 IP masquerading to allow non HTTP requests to go to the
internet, therefore SQUID controls the bandwidth and the few web sites
that i want my users to access.
Now, that i have described my network layout, i want to ask 2 questions,
hoping that you cvan help me:
1) SLOW PPP CONNECTIONS:
When this computer used to have Windows 2000 professional and Wingate
4.x i was able to connect at 4.5 - 4.9 Kbps rates. Now, with RH linux
7.3 i've tried everything in order to tune up the PPPD daemon, the
/etc/ppp/options file, modem strings, setserial configurations and so on
but the modem will only transfer at 3.5 - 3.8 Kbps only... what could be
wrong? is there something that i can do to finally boost the speed of my
2) KAZAA AND SQUID: CBQíng THESE CONNECTIONS:
I have a friend and coworker who uses Kazaa to download stuff... i´ve
allowed him to do so because he downloads cool stuff now and then that i
also like :P however, that takes over the whole bandwidth of this slow
dialup connection so i would like to know how to CBQ these connections
so that he can download at 2 Kbps at most since i cannot force Kazaa to
go through Squid and use delay pools to slow down his downloads.. or..
can i? ... his IP is 192.168.1.24 Please tell me if there is a way to
use Squid with Kazaa and use delay pools to limit the bandwidth
(although Kazaa only supports SOCKS servers) or if i have to use CBQ
instead. If all i can do is to use CBQ, please give me the right script
to limit my friend's connection to 2 Kbps over this slow dialup
connection with the 56K external modem.
Thank you in advance,
