Setting bandwidth throttling on NT4 - how?

I'm running IIS 4 on an NT-4 server box.

In the IIS control panel, there is a bandwidth setting where I can set
the max bytes/second that IIS will serve up. It says that setting
will supercede some global maching bandwidth or throttling setting.
But it doesn't say _where_ that global setting is located.

So, is there such a global setting, and if so where is it?

Post this message in microsoft.public.inetserver.iis and
microsoft.public.inetserver.iis.smtp_nntp. You may also want to post it into
microsoft.public.win2000.networking.

The only info I could fine probably won't be relevant to this specific
configuration you're working with, however I wanted you to be able to read
over the information anyway.

Server

There is a section in here that may be helpful:
Basic Web Site Configuration
----------------------------
1. Click "Start", point to "Administrative Tools", and then click
"Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager".
2. Under "<ComputerName> (local computer)", expand "Web Sites".
3. Right-click "Default Web Site", and then click "Properties".
4. Click the "Web Site" tab. If you have multiple IP addresses assigned
to your computer, click the IP address that you want to assign to this
Web site in the "IP Address" list.
5. Click the "Performance" tab. Use these options to set the Web site
properties that affect memory, bandwidth use,
and the number of connections to the Web site.

By configuring network
bandwidth on a particular site, you can better control how much traffic
there
is at that site. For example, by restricting bandwidth on a lower-priority
Web
site, you can restrict bandwidth to allow increased access to other sites.
Likewise, when you specify the number of connections to a Web site, you free
resources for other sites. Settings are site-specific and you can adjust
them as
network traffic and use changes.


- Click to select the "Limit the network bandwidth
available to this Web site" check box to configure IIS to throttle
network bandwidth to the amount selected in the " Maximum bandwidth (in
kilobytes per
second)" box.

- Under "Web site connections", click "Unlimited" to permit unlimited
client connections to this Web site, or click "Connections limited to" and
enter the number of connections you want to limit this Web site to. Limiting
connections permits computer
resources to be used for other processes.

Note Each client that browses the Web site typically uses about three
connections.


I would still cross post your question to the three groups I mentioned
above.
