Current Version: 1.5.1 (February 5, 2009)

ThrottledPro is an enhanced, graphical version of the free command-line-driven throttled software. Like its free sibling, it provides bandwidth shaping for Mac OS X that allows you to put a cap on your upstream bandwidth and keep your download speeds high even when your server is sending out at full speed. Features include:

  • Throttled Pro will provide capping services to all machines connected to you through Apple's built in Internet Connection Sharing.
  • Throttled Pro works with Apple's built in firewall. In order to configure the firewall you will need to stop Throttled Pro. After the firewall is configured, turn on Throttled Pro and everything will work just fine.
  • Throttled Pro supports BitTorrent and FTP using the configuration panel. If you use the ports configuration and have "Enable Catch All Rule" checked, then this will work as well.
  • You can setup as many services as you want in Throttled Pro.

Version 1.5.1 adds/changes the following:

  • Updated to use throttled-0.5.1 which fixes LAN capping issues experienced by some users. We now make sure 192.168.x.x, 10.x.x.x, and Bonjour networks are not throttled.
