Wink Can IPCop bandwidth throttle/shape by subnet, user or mac address?

IPCop looks like it has great features. Can I bandwidth throttle by ip, mac, subnet or user creds? I would like to restrict the bandwidth and monthly download quota to different members of the household / organisation.

IPCop can do traffic shaping: http://www.ipcop.org/1.4.0/en/admin/...rvices_shaping
but I'm not sure if it can do this based on the MAC address, IP address, etc.

Default Prevent going over allotted monthly ISP traffic quota

Thanks for the reply, Falko.

Yes, the Traffic Shaping Administration page allows for prioritizing according to traffic type, but it doesn't prevent an individual connected to the net via the corporate or home network from downloading truckloads of content in the times that there is no high priority traffic.

My goal is to migrate my systems to Linux and GNU wares but the only option I can see at the moment is to maintain an MS ISA 2004 Server with the 'Bandwidth Splitter' addin (http://www.bsplitter.com).
This enables the monthly quota to be divided amongst subnets, users, or clients - to be used however they wish.

I am hoping there is someone experienced in Linux who can advise me if there is a GNU solution for this component of the network infrastructure widely available at the moment.

Thanks

Unfortunately I don't know of such a solution...
