: About Easy Shape :

"Easy Shape" is a web-based frontend written in HTML/PHP for managing and graphing traffic/bandwidth flows under Linux. It writes to and manages Lubomír Bulej's HTB.init configuration files and allows HTB class graphing via Stef Coene's tcrrd.pl tool. Easy Shape is designed to be installed on a Linux router to limit traffic to hosts and networks behind the Linux router. Features include the following:

1.) Limiting traffic based on source/destination IP address or subnet.
2.) Limiting traffic based on source or destination port.
3.) Time-based rules for changing bandwidth limits at certain set times.
4.) Bandwidth "burst" limits.
5.) Web-based RRD graphs of configured classes.
Project sponsered by DcData.


Cheers,
Markus

Sounds great! I will try it if I find some time.

But that doesn't matter. ;-)

Nothing is perfect in our world ;-)

But why not to use port 2222 instead of 22 or 8888 instead of 80? Sure, that is not really an additional protection but maybe it helps you to keep the script kiddies and their toys out  :twisted:
