It depends on how the connection is distingushed. If you want to throttle for
specific ports or src/dst IP addresses or TOS you can mark them with iptables
or u32 and throttle with CBQ/TBF.
If you just want to share bandwidth of a link fair between
connection you also use the SFQ scheduler.
There are also other ways.
