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
