ipfw & dummynet
Authored by: sphen on Jul 02, '02 11:37:26PM

has anyone been able to do bandwidth limiting via regular ipfw commands? i found several places where you should beale to do this on bsd systems using something called dummynet, and its only a matter of activating it in the kernel. But something like this should limit any traffic coming from 10.0.1.128 to 128 kbits:

ipfw add 100 pipe 1 ip from 10.0.1.128 to any
ipfw pipe 1 config bw 128Kbit/s

good ol osx gives me errors though making me think that this so called dummynet feature is not installed.
