    Is there a mac equivalent (or can it be done in the OS) for NetLimiter ? I really need something like this, and am trying to gather all necessary files/programs before purchasing a powerbook.

    Any help would be appreciated. Sorry if this quesiton has been answered before, I didn't have a chance to search for it.

    I gotta ask, why do you need this program? I'm pretty sure I've seen this kind of software before, you may want to look into the mac firewall software out there.

    I'm at an .edu and we have a high speed connection, but also have limits on uploads and downloads. I need this program to prevent my MAC being blocked when I download.

    Well at my school our "packet shaper" will only throttle your bandwidth, it won't cut you off like you're on a quota or something.

    so is there no mac equivalent? anything along the same lines that allows you to cap your upload and download speeds?

    Not that I know of, sorry. I'd check though if you really need such a thing.
