ipfw + dummynet.

Hi all,

I want to set a ruling for all the systems on a network to limit bandwidth
to say 15KB/s from our adsl router. No probs with this using ipfw and
dummynet, however, is it then possible to allow say 3 of the 15 systems to
have the maximum amount of bandwidth and therefore not be effected by the

I can do it the other way, where I would create seperate rulings for all the
ip addresses on the network, however this seems a bit long winded.

any help would be much appreciated.
