Bandwidth Control Question

	If you are using Cisco's on both ends, you can easily do:

interface SerialX/0 
 bandwidth 6144 
 ip address <IP Address>
 no ip redirects
 no ip directed-broadcast
 no ip proxy-arp
 load-interval 30
 dsu bandwidth 6144
 no dsu remote accept
 cablelength 450
 no cdp enable

	This configuration is specific to Cisco, but if you have
a device that is not Cisco on the other end, just look at the 
dsu mode options.  Btw, this configuration will allow you to
do traffic-shaping, or rate-limiting for other things without
making it overly complicated.
