NAME

       modules - Shorewall file

SYNOPSIS

       /usr/share/shorewall/modules

       /usr/share/shorewall/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 and MODULE_SUFFIX settings
       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
