Description: Traffic Shaper init script for Linux
 This init script sets up traffic shaping using Linux's class-based
 This can be used to build smart bandwidth shapers which understand
 See /usr/share/doc/shaper/README.shaper.gz for more details.
 The kernel support needed to use either of these facilities is described

Unless its been updated in the last few weeks, you need to download the
latest CBQ.init and put that in /etc/init.d/shaper then put your shaping
rules in /etc/shaper/


[10:39 AM][root@genuis][/etc/shaper]$ ls

It'll all make sense to you when you read the shaper readme.

Very versatile and pretty easy to use. YMMV.
