I am in the middle of uploading a 2GB file via scp from my laptop at
home to a remote SSH server.  Roommate returns home, and my upload
bandwidth is killing the connection.  Can I limit/throttle the current
connection in progress without kill the 800MB I have already uploaded?
 My home Cable modem upload is horrible, and I want to preserve the
bits I already transferred.  Looking for a tool to get the job done,
expecially on an existing connection, as I suspect most tools would
need a new TCP connection to initiate the bandwidth limitations.  Any
