Franco,

 : Its possible to do something LIKE QoS or CBQ using IPTABLES ?? I want to
 : control the amount of Kbps per port in INBOUND and OUTBOUND directions

There is some documentation on QoS with linux via the "tc" binary at the
LARTC site [1].  Join the mailing list [2], check the mailing list archive
[3], and read up at Stef Coene's website [4].

In short, iptables allows you to mangle/mark packets, perform some basic
rate limiting, filter, and perform NATs.

In order to do real QoS, you'll need to use tc with your chosen queueing
discipline(s).

Good luck,

-Martin
