    Script to throttle traffic

    My server is being abused despite the protection in place. I thought the script slowing down bandwith for a user might help.

    Where is this script, can't find it. Seen here in the context of geoIP.

    Thanks!

    If you have a server running Apache you can use mod_bandwidth or mod_bw. If you are on a shared hosting account you should ask your hosting provider if they have it or if they are willing to install it.

    If you manage your own server you may want to take at HTB/qdisc. Here's a informational link: 7.*Classful Queuing Disciplines (qdiscs)

    If it seems like something you'd want to try, try googling for some howtos. I've used it on a server before that has gotten very close to it's monthly alloted bandwidth. You can do anything from limiting bandwidth on ports to single IPs - all the way to turning your 100Mbit server into a 5Mbit server for a few days.
