Search for "rate" in ftpd(8) and ftpd.conf(5) (for the server)
and ftp(1) (for the client).

The server actually supports two different forms of rate limiting;
the first is enforced by the server admin with the "rateget" and
"rateput" directives in ftpd.conf(5), and the second is requested
by a client using tnftpd (NetBSD ftpd) specific "site rateget" and
"site rateput" command extensions, which allows rate limiting
to be used even if the ftp client doesn't support it.

The ftp client (AKA tnftp) allows rate limiting to be controlled via
the command line (-T) or via the "rate" command.  "rate" can be
provided interactively, or setup in ~/.netrc.
