I am using Cisco 1921 routers. I would like to configure them so as to limit the rate at which outbound data can flow. The kicker is that I want this rate limit to be quite low, say 1000 bytes per day. Is there any way to do this? Or, if not, does anyone know of a stand-alone appliance I could insert that would achieve this effect?
To clarify what I am trying to accomplish here: The users in my shop do a lot of downloading of data, so I want no limits on incoming data. However, I want severe limits on outgoing data so as to prevent any significant leaks of the extremely valuable information residing on my servers.
To clarify further: the path through the router is used exclusively for downloading. There is no surfing going on, just cronned scripts using sftp and ftp (legacy code!). So the outbound traffic is just whatever it takes to support the file-transfer protocol. The 1000 bytes is not a hard limit - in fact, at this point, I'm not sure what the limit ought to be.
