Hi Norman,

I have looked at m0n0wall not because it was free software but there was no 
router available for a reasonable price that allows me to do what I wanted 
to do. I just wanted to say that its hard to get information about m0n0wall 
in general and traffic shaping in my special case. Please correct me if I am
not right by showing me websites that explain what I need to do (see my enquiry
"Help with traffic shaping needed" (May 15):

I do not use P2P software, I just want to dedicate a certain amount of bandwidth 
to a certain IP while releasing it to the other IPs if its not used. This is not 
possible with the wizard, I tried this already. It will share the bandwidth 
evenly on the LAN and will give higher priority to protocols rather than to IPs.
Thats almost the opposite I want. I need to define a QoS with m0n0wall and I am
looking for information or even personal help on that case.
