Hmm...I'd have to disagree. Are you perhaps assuming a certain threshold (>100mbps, for instance)? I use rate limiting for some of my customers, and when correctly configured (you _must_ use the right burst sizes), you will get the exact rate specified, TCP or not. However, I've never had to rate-limit above 30mbps, so perhaps you have some experience that I don't. Andy --- Andy Dills Xecunet, Inc. www.xecu.net 301-682-9972 ---
