    Limiting the amount of downloads at a time

    I can't seem to find out how to do this anywhere but how would I go about limiting the amount of files a single person can download from my server at one time.

    I am using IIS 5.0 and people are downloading way to many files (77 files at a time sometimes) at the same time. I would like it to be able to check the person's ip to see if they are downloading more than 2 at the same time and for every file over the limit they would get banned an additional hour (IE 3 files = 1 hour ban 4 files = 2 hour ban etc.)

    Is there some kind of ASP Script, CGI script, or ISAPI application that can do this?

    Thanks

    P.S
    I'm not talking about total downloads for the whole server, I'm talking about limiting it to 2 downloads at a time on a person by person basis.

    P.S.S
    I would like to be able to exclude picture files, html files, scripts and whatnot, but only count downloads like exe files and zip files.
