I'd like some help from a traffic-shaping whiz out there.  I did read the LARTC manual, three times, and I still don't understand how to use it so maybe someone could help me with it.  I am sure this might be useful to others - families with broadband and a linux router and say teenagers that tend to download outrageous amounts of bytes.

I have a program that can tell me if an IP number has used up their daily quota of download bytes.  I want to throttle the bandwidth seen by that IP for a certain period, so they are still connected and can access the internet but their bandwidth is severely limited for that period.

Anyone help me with this?
