Hi All,

I am trying to use CBQ to limit upload speeds available to certain hosts on 
my network.  I have successfully managed download speeds but am stumped with 
configuring the uploads speeds.  Here is what the network looks like:


+---------------+                                 +-------------+
|Linux Gateway  |---------------------------------|local hosts  |
+---------------+                                 |192.168.1.0  |
eth0 (public IP)                                  +-------------|
eth1 (local ip)

The CBQ script I am using to limit uploads is 

DEVICE=eth0,10Mbit,1Mbit
RATE=256Kbit
WEIGHT=256Kbit
PRIO=5
RULE=192.168.1.20,

I am attempting to limit upload speeds to 256K for host 192.168.1.20 on the 
local network.  This is not working at all.

And guidance on how to fix this will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Ravi
