I have my localhost webiste on http://macintosh.local - Testing my website also for IE on the same address in VMWare Fusion I tried some Apps from like WaterRoof. Never managed to get it working though.

I realize I could do this just with a few command lines in Terminal.. Anyone knows how?

Too confusing, please state in the text what you want to achieve and what have you done so far? – Karolis T. Jan 25 '10 at 15:09
I don't really see what's confusing.. I just want the bandwidth throttled on localhost, address I tried with some apps, now I would like to know the command lines. Thanks – Anton Jan 25 '10 at 16:02

It might help to know why you want to throttle your bandwidth, especially on a localhost connection. Are you trying to emulate a slow connection?

You can do this with a pipe
