Is there a way I can set my Bandwidth Manager to limit the download/upload of a specific program? I'm talking like a whole active program running on my computer, not just a website domain. Each app seems to change IPs and I don't know how I can set a limit rule for a specific app. Thanks!

For limiting the applications running of your computer we have a different product, NetGenius. It has a free fully-featured 30-day trial, so you are very welcome to download it and see if it does exactly what you want.

Bandwidth Manager is more suitable for shaping network traffic on a server for multiple users, whereas NetGenius was designed specifically for controlling applications.
