shorewall-modules man page

modules ā€” Shorewall file

Synopsis

/usr/share/shorewall[6]/modules

/usr/share/shorewall[6]/helpers

Description

These files specify which kernel modules Shorewall will load before trying to determine your iptables/kernel's capabilities.

The modules file is used when LOAD_HELPERS_ONLY=No in shorewall.conf[1](8); the helpers file is used when LOAD_HELPERS_ONLY=Yes

Each record in the files has the following format:

loadmodule modulename [moduleoption...]

The modulename names a kernel module (without suffix). Shorewall will search for modules based on your MODULESDIR setting in shorewall.conf[1](8). The moduleoptions are passed to modprobe (if installed) or to insmod.

The /usr/share/shorewall/modules file contains a large number of modules. Users are encouraged to copy the file to /etc/shorewall/modules and modify the copy to load only the modules required or to use LOAD_HELPERS_ONLY=Yes..if n .sp

Note

If you build monolithic kernels and have not installed module-init-tools, then create an empty /etc/shorewall/modules file; that will prevent Shorewall from trying to load modules at all.

Example

loadmodule ip_conntrack_ftp ports=21,221
