NAME

       params - Shorewall parameters file

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/shorewall/params

DESCRIPTION

       Assign any shell variables that you need in this file.

       It is suggested that variable names begin with an upper case letter to distinguish them
       from variables used internally within the Shorewall programs

       The following variable names must be avoided. Those in bold font must be avoided in all
       Shorewall versions; those in regular font must be avoided in versions prior to 4.4.8.
           Any option from shorewall.conf[1] (5)
           COMMAND
           CONFDIR
           DEBUG
           ECHO_E
           ECHO_N
           EXPORT
           FAST
           FILEMODE
           HOSTNAME
           IPT_OPTIONS
           NOROUTES
           PREVIEW
           PRODUCT
           PROFILE
           PURGE
           RECOVERING
           RESTOREPATH
           RING_BELL
           SHAREDIR
           Any name beginning with SHOREWALL_ or
                 SW_
           STOPPING
           TEST
           TIMESTAMP
           USE_VERBOSITY
           VARDIR
           VERBOSE
           VERBOSE_OFFSET
           VERSION

       Example params file:

           NET_IF=eth0
           NET_BCAST=130.252.100.255
           NET_OPTIONS=routefilter,norfc1918

       Example shorewall-interfaces[2](5) file.

           ZONE    INTERFACE       BROADCAST       OPTIONS
           net     $NET_IF         $NET_BCAST      $NET_OPTIONS

       This is the same as if the interfaces file had contained:

           ZONE    INTERFACE       BROADCAST       OPTIONS
           net     eth0            130.252.100.255 routefilter,norfc1918
