Re: Restricting upload and dowbnload speed

Some being by the name of houghi managed to piece together the following:

How can I restrict upload and download speed for certain programs in
bash? Some of the programs affected are wget, lynx, leafnode, newspost
and perhaps others as well.


wget use the -limit-rate=amount
ftp use -T direction,maximum[,increment]
I see nothing for the others you mention. It might be worth looking at qdisc
if you want to set the rate overall by IP etc.
