    Limit ftp bandwidth on a user specific basis


    All,
    I have a user I find is downloading way to much stuff through FTP. I'm wondering if I can limit the amount of Mb he is allowed per day or per hour or something like that? I hoping it's as easy as locking him into a specific directory.

    Thanks,
    Jeremy

    Which ftp server do you use, some of them have specific built in functions...or you could do some googling on squid proxies, which can limit based upon user groups
    Operating System: GNU Emacs

    I'm using ProFTP that comes with Mandrake 10.1.
