So, I'm kind of making sshusers for ssh tunneling to surf some content which is blocked by my country. But, I don't want somebody to slow down others internet speed , therefore I want to limit the connection to, eg: 100KB/s. I know trickled can be used in this situation but how?

Or simply: trickle -d 100 -u 100 ssh -D 1080 remotehost – Cakemox May 18 '11 at 8:13

have you used this? because, I little bit complex, I did not understand how to limit global network of the server. – snagcheol May 18 '11 at 1:41
Yea, I'm using it. It actually tries to optimize for port 22 traffic but you want to limit port 22 traffic. – dmourati May 18 '11 at 1:55
