Workstation, my Laptop.

Mostly sending heavy emails and rsync to Hardy isos.

In our company we have an Micro$oft ISA server limiting users to 20KB/s so that the VOIP aint affected.

But since Ubuntu was lots of difficulty to login to the ISA server using the Integrated Authentication, my machine and another test server can only access the Internet when connected directly ti the router WiFi.
While using it, I need to manage my BW so it wont affect other users, the servers, and VOIP.

It would be quite hard to manage all 60 users permitions on a router, right?

ps. My emails tend to sound authority and aggressive. I'm sorry in advance. I'll try to be more assertive as time goes by...
