[Fwd: Re: [SLUG] QOS - VOIP]

Thanks Oscar I will check that out.

I have clients that download engineering drawings but do it using webdav with apache. so another option i will look is using bandwidth throttling there ( if there is one - i haven't checked yet). - thanks Matt

You can certainly do what Oscar suggests, but I've found
the easiest way is to use a tool (e.g. wget, lftp) that
has builtin support for limiting the rate.
