       tunnels - Shorewall6 VPN definition file




       The tunnels file is used to define rules for encapsulated (usually encrypted) traffic to
       pass between the Shorewall6 system and a remote gateway. Traffic flowing through the
       tunnel is handled using the normal zone/policy/rule mechanism. See for details.

       The columns in the file are as follows (where the column name is followed by a different
       name in parentheses, the different name is used in the alternate specification syntax).

       TYPE -
           Types are as follows:

                       ipsec         - IPv6 IPSEC
                       ipsecnat      - IPv6 IPSEC with NAT Traversal (UDP port 4500 encapsulation)
                       gre           - Generalized Routing Encapsulation (Protocol 47)
                       l2tp          - Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (UDP port 1701)
                       openvpn       - OpenVPN in point-to-point mode
                       openvpnclient - OpenVPN client runs on the firewall
                       openvpnserver - OpenVPN server runs on the firewall
                       generic       - Other tunnel type

           If the type is ipsec, it may be followed by :ah to indicate that the Authentication
           Headers protocol (51) is used by the tunnel (the default is :noah which means that
           protocol 51 is not used). NAT traversal is only supported with ESP (protocol 50) so
           ipsecnat tunnels don't allow the ah option (ipsecnat:noah may be specified but is

           If type is openvpn, openvpnclient or openvpnserver it may optionally be followed by
           ":" and tcp or udp to specify the protocol to be used. If not specified, udp is
           assumed. Note: At this writing, OpenVPN does not support IPv6.

           If type is openvpn, openvpnclient or openvpnserver it may optionally be followed by
           ":" and the port number used by the tunnel. if no ":" and port number are included,
           then the default port of 1194 will be used. . Where both the protocol and port are
           specified, the protocol must be given first (e.g., openvpn:tcp:4444).

           If type is generic, it must be followed by ":" and a protocol name (from
           /etc/protocols) or a protocol number. If the protocol is tcp or udp (6 or 17), then it
           may optionally be followed by ":" and a port number.

       ZONE - zone
           The zone of the physical interface through which tunnel traffic passes. This is
           normally your internet zone.

       GATEWAY - address-or-range
           The IP address of the remote tunnel gateway. If the remote gateway has no fixed
           address (Road Warrior) then specify the gateway as ::/0. May be specified as a network
           address and if your kernel and ip6tables include iprange match support then IP address
           ranges are also allowed.

       GATEWAY ZONES (gateway_zone) - [zone[,zone]...]
           Optional. If the gateway system specified in the third column is a standalone host
           then this column should contain a comma-separated list of the names of the zones that
           the host might be in. This column only applies to IPSEC tunnels where it enables
           ISAKMP traffic to flow through the tunnel to the remote gateway.


       Example 1:
           IPSec tunnel.

           The remote gateway is 2001:cec792b4:1::44. The tunnel does not use the AH protocol

                       #TYPE           ZONE    GATEWAY
                       ipsec:noah      net     2002:cec792b4:1::44

       Example 2:
           Road Warrior (LapTop that may connect from anywhere) where the "gw" zone is used to
           represent the remote LapTop

                       #TYPE           ZONE    GATEWAY                 GATEWAY ZONES
                       ipsec           net     ::/0                    gw

       Example 3:
           Host 2001:cec792b4:1::44 is a standalone system connected via an ipsec tunnel to the
           firewall system. The host is in zone gw.

                       #TYPE           ZONE    GATEWAY                 GATEWAY ZONES
                       ipsec           net     2001:cec792b4:1::44     gw

       Example 4:
           OPENVPN tunnel. The remote gateway is 2001:cec792b4:1::44 and openvpn uses port 7777.

                       #TYPE           ZONE    GATEWAY                 GATEWAY ZONES
                       openvpn:7777    net     2001:cec792b4:1::44

       Example 8:
           You have a tunnel that is not one of the supported types. Your tunnel uses UDP port
           4444. The other end of the tunnel is 2001:cec792b4:1::44.

                       #TYPE            ZONE    GATEWAY                GATEWAY ZONES
                       generic:udp:4444 net     2001:cec792b4:1::44
