Hello serverfault community,

Does anybody used an iptables rule or know an exim4 configuration setting to limit upload bandwidth??

All the ways I've found through google was with proxies which I don't prefer.

Thanks in advance

You have two options for traffic shaping

  • Use tc directly.
  • Use some tool more convenient like shorewall.
