How to control ip-traffic in a lan ?

Post by webdes.. » Mon, 13 Mar 2000 04:00:00

I have a small lan and my Linux is the router.
What can I do to control the traffic from a Computer with the ip
XXX.XXX.XXX.122 who is using my Linux to connect to my ISP.

I want to be able to limit the traffic the ip XXX.XXX.XXX.122 is using

to for example 12 Mb per day.

Is it possible.
Can anybody tell me if there is a tool what can do this.

Thanx a lot

1. determine throughput from LAN to Internet, Durchsatz vom LAN ins Internet berechnen


Does anyone have a program (or a link to a program) which determines
(under LINUX) how much a single computer in a network
downloads/uploads to/from the intenet?
In particular:
I have a linux-router connected to the internet (ppp0) and also
connected to a local LAN(ethX). Now I want to know, which of the Nodes
(connected to the internal LAN) consume how much throughput (in MB or
KB) to the Internet (extern WAN). Upload and download. Until now all
is done via 'iptables', working (masquerading).

THX for any help.


Kennt jemand ein Programm (oder den Link zu einem Programm) welches
unter LINUX feststellt, welcher lokale Rechner wie viel vom Internet
Genau gesagt:
Ich habe einen LUNUX-router, welcher zum Internet (ppp0) als auch zum
internen LAN (eht0) verbunden ist. Jetzt m?chte ich wissen, wie viel
jeder einzelne Rechner im LAN vom Internet ladet bzw. wie viel jeder
einzelne Rechner ins Internet uploadet. Bis jetz funktioniert alles
ber die IPTABLES und es funktioniert (MASQUERADING).

Danke fr jede Hilfe.

Cheers, Kuge
