NAME

       modules - shorewall6 file

SYNOPSIS

       /usr/share/shorewall6/modules

       /usr/share/shorewall6/helpers

DESCRIPTION

       These files specify which kernel modules shorewall6 will load before
       trying to determine your ip6tables/kernel's capabilities. The modules
       file is used when LOAD_HELPERS_ONLY=No in shorewall6.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). shorewall6 will
       search for modules based on your MODULESDIR and MODULE_SUFFIX settings
       in shorewall6.conf[1](8). The moduleoptions are passed to modprobe (if
       installed) or to insmod.

       The /usr/share/shorewall6/modules file contains a large number of
       modules. Users are encouraged to copy the file to
       /etc/shorewall6/modules and modify the copy to load only the modules
       required or 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/shorewall6/modules
           file; that will prevent shorewall6 from trying to load modules at
           all.

EXAMPLE

       loadmodule ip_conntrack_ftp ports=21,221
