Limiting concurrent downloads on a windows dedicated
I have a windows dedicated server (2003 web).
Anyone knows how to limit the amount of concurrent downloads per any file in a specific directory? say I got a file that I want no more than 2 concurrent connections from any IP to access, how do I go about that?
btw, this is done to prevent people with Flashget, Reget and GoZilla to open multiple connections to a file and bringing my bandwidth way down. If you have any other solutions, please be my guest.
You would need an ISAPI extension if you want to limit based on IP address (be careful, what about legitimate ones coming via a proxy - AOL anyone?). Better still, limit based on session, cookie or agent string to try and get a match.
