NAME

       modules - Shorewall file

SYNOPSIS

       /usr/share/shorewall/modules

DESCRIPTION

       This  file  specifies  which  kernel modules Shorewall will load before
       trying to determine your iptables/kernel’s capabilities. Each record in
       the file has the following format:
       loadmodule modulename [moduleoption]...

       The  modulename  names a kernel module (without suffix). Shorewall will
       search for modules based on your MODULESDIR and MODULE_SUFFIX  settings
       in  shorewall.conf  〈shorewall.conf.html〉  (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.
              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
