All my attempts to shape my TCP traffic, either CBQ- or HTB-based, have
failed mysteriously, like if I had set no rule.
Please, help me to solve this problem :
On my LAN ( 192.168.2.0/24 ), I'd like to configure my Linux Box ( whose
eth0 interface has IP 192.168.2.2 ) in order to throttle the TCP traffic
that goes from the Internet down to my Linux box; that is, through my
gateway ( of IP 192.168.2.1 ). But I still want to keep full rate in
bidirectional communications between my Linux Box and other hosts on my
LAN, and even my gateway itself.
My Ethernet adapter is 100 Mbits/s and let's say I want to keep Internet
downloads from my Linux Box below 64 Kbits/s.
The way I thought right was to drop superfluous incoming packets
( beyond the limit of 64 Kbits/s ) so that the remote TCP socket would
auto-regulate its emit rate according to packet loss ratio.
Your help will be very appreciated.
Only volatile test configuration matters; no init/rc script(s).
