comment How to dedicate partial (1Mbps) out of total (2Mbps) Leased Line internet at low cost?
@TomTom I don't see any substantial difference between your "TCP does sortof help, BUT" and my "this is rather imperfect". You're right insofar as I shouldn't have called that "shaping" traffic, of course it's more like "crude bandwidth limitation".

Sure you can shape incoming traffic. Simply throw away whatever exceeds the allocated bandwidth. TCP flow control will then reduce the data rate appropriately. This is admittedly rather imperfect and will not work for this question's use case (the VPN is unlikely to run on top of TCP; if it does anyway, you have worse problems than bandwidth allocation), but if all you need is mostly-fair distribution of data rates to different departments it's better than nothing.

If you no longer have internet access after changing the default route, then the box your're now routing your traffic to doesn't receive or forward it. The reasons are out of scope WRT this question.

That sounds like you don't have a default route in the first place?? You can use ip route replace default instead, it'll add a route if none existed before. Either that, or you currently do not have an up&running interface to which 10.10.10.1 is directly connected.

comment Limiting the connection source in firewall
Works for me. Are you sure you're not using IPv6 to connect to that host?

comment Cannot reattach to a screen session after SSH connection was dropped
Strange. It should. What does happen instead?

Right, current screen still thinks you're attached after you kill the client, which arguably is a bug.

That's not the same at all, previously it was 'no such file or directory'! "Operation not permitted" means you need to do that as root: sudo ip route change ….

Hmm. ip route change default via 10.10.10.1 dev eth1 definitely should work, given your interfaces.

Why would you want to kill the hung screen command's parent process? You want to kill the attaching screen command itself. #7387 in your case.

Why would you mail the password to your users, then?

Sure. That would be a mailserver configuration issue. Search for your email server and "tarpit" if you also want to annoy these guys. ;-)

No. Their DNS records, they can add whatever they like.
