I know that. Thats why I have first looked through the manual (nothing
in there about traffic shaping), the mailinglist archive (lots of similar
questions, no useful replies), visited various websites. I could not find
a solution. That why I tried the mailing list.

Right, I am in France. The traffic shaping feature is one of the most
important features of m0n0wall, but its hard to find good information

I try and fail since about 14 days. The wizard is useless since I want to
reserve a CERTAIN bandwidth in upload AND download direction to certain
IPs. This should apply to ALL traffic / protocols for a given IP address.
Please refer to my posting "Help with traffic shaping needed" if you (or
anyone else) wants to help me by discussing this subject.
I really would appreciate any useful help. Again please reply to the
mail "Help with traffic shaping needed" - not in this thread for further
