    Because i'm a web developer i was trying some bandwidth limiting with IPFW in the terminal to test how my web apps will work with a slow internet connection. After i was done i did "# sudo IPFW flush" and thought i was done…

    But then i got a feeling that my internet connection was slow so i tried "sudo IPFW pipe show" to see if i forgot to flush some pipes. It gave me an error message:

    ipfw: getsockopt(IP_DUMMYNET_GET): No buffer space available

    I'm affraid that i've done something wrong. Is it possible that i've broken something? How can i find out, and if true: how can i fix it?

    I am not a developer and havent played with IPFW, and I get the same message.

    I doubt therefore that its your fault....

    Okey thanks, that would be great! But it's a weird error don't you think? Is it a bug in IPFW, or is it just normal?
