hey all,
i've been hacking up a dummynet config for my mail sever which is in a
colo facility.  i'm trying to limit my bandwidth to around 60kB/s on
ingress and egress flows.  now i think i'm running into a problem with
dummynet restricting the bandwidth on my lo0 device, which is having a
negative effect on performance for squirellmail instance connecting to
a local imapd.  from reading the docs i have not found an easy way to
apply pipe's to only external devices, and not the loopback device. 
any idea's...hopefully missing something basic ;)
