[Cerowrt-devel] Torrents are too fast

In other words, rather than share the capacity of the link "fairly" among flows (as TCP would if you eliminated excess buffer-bloat), you want to impose control on an endpoint from the middle?
This seems counterproductive... what happens when the IP address changes, new services arise, and more ports are involved?
TCP and other protocols generally are responsive when packets are dropped at a congested point, and they generally end up sharing the available capacity relatively fairly.  If you want even more fairness, use fq_codel. It should do pretty much what you want without even having to identify the source addresses.

what lines do I have to add to simple.qos script on cerowrt to slow down bulk traffic from a specific IP address ( and from a specific port (18224)?

Thank you guys
