The traffic shaper is a sophisticated but easy-to-use shell script for throttling or granting a certain bandwidth to certain connections. Additionally, it implements an easy-to-configure packet filter. Both parts are based on facilities provided by the Linux 2.4 kernel (iproute2 for the traffic shaper and netfilter with IPTables for the packet filter). The packet filter offers independent SYN/ACK check, and stateful and log rules for each configured rule.
