Hi Dennis,

You are of course right, there is (usually) no need to have any 
pipes/queues/rules for inbound traffic. Indeed, this will often make 
things worse!

I was rather new to traffic sharing when I wrote the text, and did so 
in a hurry due to "popular demand". At the time I thought I'd soon get 
around to writing another, more thorough, version, as well as possibly 
doing the traffic shaper chapter for the m0n0wall documentation 
project. Unfortunatly I've been very busy ever since, and have thus 
had no time to do these things :(

Since then I've myself removed all the inbound rules from my own 
m0n0wall configuration. I guess I should have posted a notice about
this.

Sorry for the inconvinience this may have caused!

Hopefully I will soon be able to, at least, post an updated version of 
traffic_shaper.txt, with corrections such as the above, but right now 
I'm still too busy.

Adam.
