We have a debian server using IP tables to do the routing within a serviced office. We have a different VLAN/SUBNET for each client of our serviced office and we are having difficulty using TC to get shaping working on different vlans. Currently when we enable it using the command line it gives us unusual results. The speed of individual connections slow considerably even if we set the shaping to a speed that is higher than our total link speed.

We also have 3 things on the wish list
We want a script written accessible from a web interface that shows us which IP addresses are consuming the most bandwidth as well as how many connections are currently open per IP address. We also want it to show the mac address of the IP.

We also want the ability to block the mac address of a device on our network, as well as having the ability to add "allowed mac addresses" on each VLAN for additional security.

We would like the ability to block bittorrent traffic through packet inspection.
