Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

There are software tools to do things like that.

One free option could be <a href=”http://bandwidthcontroller.com/trafficShaperXp.html”>Traffic Shaper XP</a>

That answer only works for one PC, or where that PC is the gateway to the Internet.

To do this for a number of PCs, you can configure queues on the router, if it supports this (Cisco can do this as can some others), or look at a device like Packeteer that is designed solely to do thi ssort of job.

It needs some degree of configuration, and if you know the IPs is not too difficult to achieve.

    You can do this in many commercial firewalls and Web content filtering/proxy systems. You didn't mention which protocols you want to control but I'd recommend looking at what you may already have first.
