NAME

       shorewall6-lite.conf - Shorewall6 Lite global configuration file

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/shorewall6-lite/shorewall6-lite.conf

DESCRIPTION

       This file sets options that apply to Shorewall6 Lite as a whole.

       The file consists of Shell comments (lines beginning with '#'), blank
       lines and assignment statements (variable=value). Each variable's
       setting is preceded by comments that describe the variable and it's
       effect.

       Any option not specified in this file gets its value from the
       shorewall6.conf file used during compilation of
       /var/lib/shorewall6-lite/firewall. Those settings may be found in the
       file /var/lib/shorewall6-lite/firewall.conf.

OPTIONS

       The following options may be set in shorewall6.conf.

       IP6TABLES=[pathname]
           This parameter names the ip6tables executable to be used by
           Shorewall6. If not specified or if specified as a null value, then
           the ip6tables executable located using the PATH option is used.

       LOGFILE=[pathname]
           This parameter tells the /sbin/shorewall6 program where to look for
           Shorewall6 messages when processing the dump, logwatch, show log,
           and hits commands. If not assigned or if assigned an empty value,
           /var/log/messages is assumed.

       LOGFORMAT=["formattemplate"]
           The value of this variable generate the --log-prefix setting for
           Shorewall6 logging rules. It contains a "printf" formatting
           template which accepts three arguments (the chain name, logging
           rule number (optional) and the disposition). To use LOGFORMAT with
           fireparse, set it as:

                   LOGFORMAT="fp=%s:%d a=%s "

           If the LOGFORMAT value contains the substring "%d" then the logging
           rule number is calculated and formatted in that position; if that
           substring is not included then the rule number is not included. If
           not supplied or supplied as empty (LOGFORMAT="") then
           "Shorewall6:%s:%s:" is assumed.

       PATH=pathname[:pathname]...
           Determines the order in which Shorewall6 searches directories for
           executable files.

       RESTOREFILE=[filename]
           Specifies the simple name of a file in /var/lib/shorewall6 to be
           used as the default restore script in the shorewall6 save,
           shorewall6 restore, shorewall6 forget and shorewall6 -f start
           commands.

       SHOREWALL_SHELL=[pathname]
           This option is used to specify the shell program to be used to
           interpret the compiled script. If not specified or specified as a
           null value, /bin/sh is assumed. Using a light-weight shell such as
           ash or dash can significantly improve performance.

       SUBSYSLOCK=[pathname]
           This parameter should be set to the name of a file that the
           firewall should create if it starts successfully and remove when it
           stops. Creating and removing this file allows Shorewall6 to work
           with your distribution's initscripts. For RedHat, this should be
           set to /var/lock/subsys/shorewall6. For Debian, the value is
           /var/state/shorewall6 and in LEAF it is /var/run/shorwall.

       VERBOSITY=[number]
           Shorewall6 has traditionally been very noisy (produced lots of
           output). You may set the default level of verbosity using the
           VERBOSITY OPTION.

           Values are:
               0 - Silent. You may make it more verbose using the -v
                           option
               1 - Major progress messages displayed
               2 - All progress messages displayed (old default
                           behavior)
           If not specified, then 2 is assumed.
