Traffic/Network Shaping

Hi,
I have a fedora 8 server that will be running DNS, DHCP, file server and will be acting as a gateway.
I want some traffic shaping softwares that can

1. Control bandwidth on protocol, port, IP basis. Like, if I have a 1 Mbps line then ftp shud get 10 Kbps, ssh 5 Kbps and each IP shud get 32 Kbps. Further I shud be able to control these parameters.

2. Shud be able to block sites. Though I can do this with iptables, but a functionality in such a software wud be nice.

3. Shud be able to monitor the connections and traffic.


I have tried master shaper. I successfully installed it on FC5 but can't do it on F8 as it requires php4 and other old stuff. The newer one is in development stages. So if you know any such software that can fulfill above mentioned requirements or even the first one (i.e bandwidth control), then please mention it. It wud be nice if someone gives a brief review of it, if he/she has used it.

you need to set your own shaping rules. It's quite easy once you do some reading and understand the tools/techniques. TC is the tool to use.

LARTC.org is the place to find the answers.

I use it on several machines and it works great. Be prepared for a challenge.

You could also use a ready made router distro such as m0n0wall or pfsense (bsd based) to put in front of your network. They include traffic shaping interfaces.

Yea I have downloaded them already and I know about lartc as well. But I wanted to find if there exists any application like ntop or similar that when installed does the needed.
