Much depends on features of the network device(s) that the host is connected to. Also depends on whether you want to regulate bandwidth to and/or from the host and where you wish to provide such regulation.

hi...thanks for the reply.

the subnet to which host belongs, connected to a 7507 router and host at other end belongs to other subnet which is connected to 2811 Cisco router's interface.There is 2Mbps point-to-point connection between two routers.I would like to segment the 2Mbps bandwidth so that particular host in both subnets should get the more bandwidth than others.Say the following topology:

Subnet:,host,gateway(router) <<-----2Mbps Connection--->>Subnet,host,gateway(router):, there are also other hosts in both subnets.I want to segment the bandwidth so that host and should get at least 128Kbps bandwidth , and others will get the remaining bandwidth..Is it possible to do , if yest then on which network device, either on router at both ends or hosts ate both end ???
