NAME

       params - Shorewall6 parameters file

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/shorewall6/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 shorewall6.conf[1]
                 (5)
           COMMAND
           CONFDIR
           DEBUG
           ECHO_E
           ECHO_N
           EXPORT
           FAST
           FILEMODE
           HOSTNAME
           IPT_OPTIONS
           NOROUTES
           PREVIEW
           PRODUCT

                 SW_
           STOPPING
           TEST
           TIMESTAMP
           USE_VERBOSITY

           VERSION

       Example params file:

           NET_IF=eth0
           NET_OPTIONS=dhcp,nosmurfs

       Example shorewall6-interfaces[2](5) file.

           ZONE    INTERFACE       BROADCAST       OPTIONS
           net     $NET_IF         -               $NET_OPTIONS

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

           ZONE    INTERFACE       BROADCAST       OPTIONS
           net     eth0            -               dhcp,nosmurfs
