    I want to limit the total FTP bandwidth to 4 meg on each of my ISPConfig servers so that all users on that server share that 4 meg. Googling seems to indicate there is not a parameter that you can put into /etc/pure-ftpd/conf like you can when setting passive port ranges. It appears that you have to call a parameter -t or -T when starting up pure-ftpd. Where is that located? the command for pure-ftpd so I can add that option at startup time?

    Thanks!

    Debian uses the following wrapper script to start pure-ftpd:

    /usr/sbin/pure-ftpd-wrapper

    take a look inside that script to see if -t or -T exist already as options and how the file in /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/ has to be named to activate these switches.

    Exactly what I needed. There is a UserBandwith variable already defined in the wrapper.

    Thanks!!!
