NAME

       notrack - shorewall notrack file

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/shorewall/notrack

DESCRIPTION

       The notrack file is used to exempt certain traffic from Netfilter
       connection tracking. Traffic matching entries in this file will not be
       tracked.

       The columns in the file are as follows.

       SOURCE – {zone[:interface][:address-list]|COMMENT}
           where zone is the name of a zone, interface is an interface to that
           zone, and address-list is a comma-separated list of addresses (may
           contain exclusion - see shorewall-exclusion[1] (5)).

           Comments may be attached to Netfilter rules generated from entries
           in this file through the use of COMMENT lines. These lines begin
           with the word COMMENT; the remainder of the line is treated as a
           comment which is attached to subsequent rules until another COMMENT
           line is found or until the end of the file is reached. To stop
           adding comments to rules, use a line with only the word COMMENT.

       DEST – [interface|address-list]
           where interface is the name of a network interface and address-list
           is a comma-separated list of addresses (may contain exclusion - see
           shorewall-exclusion[1] (5)). If an interface is given:

           ·   It must be up and configured with an IPv4 address when
               Shorewall is started or restarted.

           ·   All routes out of the interface must be configured when
               Shorewall is started or restarted.

           ·   Default routes out of the interface will result in a warning
               message and will be ignored.

           These restrictions are because Netfilter doesn't support NOTRACK
           rules that specify a destination interface (these rules are applied
           before packets are routed and hence the destination interface is
           unknown). Shorewall uses the routes out of the interface to replace
           the interface with an address list corresponding to the networks
           routed out of the named interface.

       PROTO – protocol-name-or-number
           A protocol name from /etc/protocols or a protocol number.

       DEST PORT(S) - port-number/service-name-list
           A comma-separated list of port numbers and/or service names from
           /etc/services. May also include port ranges of the form
           low-port:high-port if your kernel and iptables include port range
           support.

       SOURCE PORT(S) - port-number/service-name-list
           A comma-separated list of port numbers and/or service names from
           /etc/services. May also include port ranges of the form
           low-port:high-port if your kernel and iptables include port range
           support.

       USER/GROUP – [user][:group]
           May only be specified if the SOURCE zone is $FW. Specifies the
           effective user id and or group id of the process sending the
           traffic.
