    Limit traffic for users

    Hey

    How can I limit the traffic for shell users?
    e.g. I create 5 users and each of them uses the ssh server as a proxy. I want each user to create only 5GB traffic a month. How can I do this? I've already tried iptables but they can only limit the traffic created by the user who started the ssh server

    Regards

    I would suggest tunneling SSHd via a proxy and limiting the traffic at the proxy...

    Ive worked with a similar system...

    You have to wonder though, what are they using the SSH proxy for

    I want to provide the users an encrypted connection to the server so i can't use a normal proxy server
