bandwidth sharing

By longennamer ·
My company hosts its own webserver (IIS4) on the same Internet connection as used to by employees to access internet (MS Proxy). Is there a way to limit the amount of bandwidth that employees can use, so that our website is never slowed down by large downloads by employees?

bandwidth sharing

Hi.

The best way to do this is on a hardware level. The only one I have had the pleasure of installing is a PacketShaper. It allows you to prioritize certain types of traffic on a link, which sounds like what you are wanting to do.

Have a lookat the following address:

http://www.packeteer.com/products/packetshaper/index.cfm

Remove any spaces or %20 statements appearing in the above URL.

I hope this helps.
Regards.
Duwane

Depends on your network backbone. An intelligent switch can do this; you can set user workstation ports to 10Mbps, and the web server port to 100 Mbps. Or set up a VLAN on the switch and limit the speeds it runs on for the users, and a separate VLANfor the web server with no limits.
Putting the user workstation on their own segment (10.1.2.x) and putting the web server on a different one (10.1.1.x) will also keeps things separated.
There are a lot of different ways to do this. It just depends on how much work you want to do.
