Dedicated server XP machine with 2 network cards   18 December 2005, 00:55

My network is configured as such:
1 dedicated server XP machine with 2 network cards. 1 card goes out to a series of 10/100mbit 5port hubs, the other card is connected to a cable modem.

The 2 hubs (One linksys, one d-link, btw) feed signals to a total of 5 leaf computers with static IPs.

I want to limit the upload of each of the leaf computers to a MAX of 30k/s, and guarantee a rate of 10k/s for each computer when they request it.

I have a rule set up to limit tcp/udp outgoing from one of the machines MAC addresses, to any port and any destination IP on the cable interface, but it does not effect that machine at all. I have tried every possible combination and it does not seem even like the service is running. It shows it has 14k output in the history, but thats it.

You should watch the traffic on the LAN interface, not on the cable one. A rule may look as follows:

Protocol: TCP/UDP
Direction: Incoming
Rate: 30000 bytes/sec
Interface: LAN (that connected to the hubs)
Source: MAC address of a machine
Destination: Any

Please let me know how it works for you.
