Is there any way to control the priority on the ppp connection. I mean if
I have a background process (or more likely another virtual terminal)
doing a large download, but elsewhere I am trying to do some interactive
work remotely, I don't think merely changing the niceness of the download
task will affect its hogging the bandwidth to my isp, since that is not
primarily a cpu bound problem.
Or is that largely uncharted territory.
