No disrespect taken, I had to look for a second to see if I had posted
the link for the source. Guess I didn't. 

The source code is available via: http://m0n0.paxetman.com/dshaper/

It wouldn't be very smart to run just anything without a little
research, and I'm glad to see that you did yours. Freshmeat hasn't yet
made available my updates to my project. The existing source and binary
are released under the revised BSD License found at:

Let me know what you think about the project.

No disrespect intended, but without being able to find more information
about your dshaper project (which is defunct on freshmeat), and without
open source code, I can't consider running it on my firewall.

Think about it for a second... "Try running this closed source,
binary-only software on your firewall for me".  Unless I knew and
trusted the source implicitly, I'd be a cowboy if I introduced this to
my first-point-of-security in my environment!

Any chance that you'll publish anything at all about your project, so we
can make an informed decision?  Maybe others here know you better than
I, but I don't have any past history with the project, so my defenses
are up....
