Traffic Shaping

  • Limit a single app with the trickle package
  • See https://github.com/meermanr/adsl for my wondershaper script designed for a host with a single network adaptor (assumes you have control of your ADSL box)

Force shaping onto someone else's network

Here's a quick-and-dirty guide to how I hijacked my home network when I lived with some other students to force traffic shaping onto the entire network, since two of my housemates had gone away for the weekend and left their torrent clients running.
