Re: traffic shaping

Simply put, Traffic shaping is a way to make traffic conform to a set of rules you set.

These rules ( UPC ) can be protocol based on precendence or traffic based on volumes at specific times. Here is a link describing details:

QOS is something you might look into as well. This is more for traffic prioritization but might be what you are looking for as well.

Good URL on QOS for you as well:

Hope this helps,

Don
