If you've a Linux based firewall in front of (on) your webserver see the
"Linux Advanced Routing and Traffic Control HOWTO"

Looks pretty straight forward to me...

There's also something called the "Wonder Shaper" that's vaguely useful if your running a
webserver at home w/ a asymmetric connection.
