could you, say, slap a limit on the local host address?
not sure that will work for what i want to do but....can you?
see whats happening is this...
setting up a second PC, home network, x-over cable (dont have a router)
i wanna split the bandwidth between, basically a public IP and a privte IP
but if i put a limit on my public IP i have effectively choked everything...i think..
say i'm 69.x, second PC is 68.x....
i'm sure i can limit 68.x, but 69.x can still gobble up all the bandwidth
(highly unlikely on a 5mb line, but...)
and if i impose a 2mb limit on 69.x,
then i have basically choked the shared b/w to 2mb instead of 5
so i was thinking maybe i could try it on the local host (127.0.0.1)
or would that not work?
or...back to my first question...will netlimiter even do IP limiting?
im f'n confused
i'll be getting a router eventually, but need a down 'n' dirty quick fix for now
