I would like to be able to rate limit the downstream connection. Limiting it to 20,000 packets per second or 5MB/sec would work for me. A way of remotely disabling the tunnel, such as by sending a special UDP packet out to the server should also work. That would have to be automated with a script.

Someone is doing a DoS attack which overloads my connection and I cannot connect to anything, even to configure the tunnel.

Unfortunately I have to turn off my tunnel for the time being or my connection could be down for as long as an hour at random times.
