How can I limit port speed in ESXi vSphere Client? I'm having trouble

* I am trying to limit each VPS inside of my main server to 100MB/sec speeds.

My server is 1000MB/sec(1GBps)

I selected my main dedicated server then went to 'Configuration' then clicked 'Networking' then clicked 'Properties' then my network adapter, then clicked 'Edit'. Afterwards I selected 'Traffic Shaping', put the values to 100000Kbits/sec(100MB/sec). Clicked OK.

I then went to my VPS server and downloaded file using wget command from France, USA, and Iran. VPS speed shows 4MB/sec-8MB/sec

What is the is a way I can limit speeds within each VPS on my dedicated server?

Why isn't this working?

vSphere Client

Version 5.1.0

You need to look at your math again. 100 MB (megabytes) does NOT equal 100,000 KB (kilobits). Also, you are horrendously outdated in your ESXi version and terribly need an upgrade.

Keep also in mind that only enterprise+ can handle ingress AND egress. All other editions only ingress(?).
