If you are using Cisco's on both ends, you can easily do:
ip address <IP Address> 255.255.255.252
no ip redirects
no ip directed-broadcast
no ip proxy-arp
dsu bandwidth 6144
no dsu remote accept
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.
