    Hi there.
    I have a windows machine at home which i would like to limit all traffic
    going out the ethernet interface to 50kbit (in & out) except for traffic
    from or to my local lan (192.168.1.x).

    How do I do this? Is there any freeware which can do it? If it helps, it is
    running windows 2000 server

    I would be reasonably sure that if you use linux as your NAT box then you
    can do it.

    I'm using an m1122 adsl router for nat.
    I know nothing about linux and every attempt I have made to get to grips
    with it has ended in disaster.
    I only want to limit the one box on outgoing data to a vpn server.

    Any help or links appreciated

    If you are not willing to use an old PC with Linux, I suggest a Cisco router
    then. It should be able to do what you need out of the box.

    Although this could be you chance to learn a little more about linux :)
