Hi Guys,

This question has been bugging me for a while.. Does anyone know if cisco will bring out an IOS which support incoming and outgoing bandwidth statements on the same interface?

Working with ADSL you really only have 2 choices, set it to either the upload or the download speed. I'm just curious!

Define this way:

HQ-Router(config)# interface Serial0/0

HQ-Router(config-if)# rate-limit output access-group 120 50000

10000 20000 conform-action transmit exceed-action drop

HQ-Router(config)# access-list 120 permit tcp any eq www host

"I'm just curious!"

Realize that routers chose a path for forwarding packets. "Bandwidth" is often used to help make this decision. So in an example where you have asymmetric bandwidth on a path, a bandwidth setting would normally correspond with the outbound bandwidth.

The inbound bandwidth would be the other side's outbound bandwidth, and have influence there.

My guess the issue you see with ADSL is you have no control over the device for the other side.
