On Mon, Nov 14, 2005 at 08:18:46PM +0000 I heard the voice of
Carlos Silva aka |Danger_Man|, and lo! it spake thus:
> I've set "ipfw add pipe 1 ip from any to any 80;ipfw pipe 1 config
> bw 2Kbyte/s" but ipfw don't limit the bw of the port 80.
Yes, it does, just now how you probably want. It limits the bandwidth
of all packets _DESTINED_ to port 80. Packets _FROM_ port 80 don't
hit that rule, therefore don't go through the pipe. Limiting traffic
TO port 80 to 2kB/s probably isn't all that useful unless people are
posting some really big forms 8-}
