Shorewall 1.3.7 Released

This is a bug-fix roleup together with changes to the way ICMP is handled in Shorewall.

Features in this release include:

1.3.7b:

  • This is just a role up of the shorewall refresh bug fix plus the change that reversed the order of dhcp and rfc1918 filtering.

1.3.7a:

  • corrects problems occurring in rules file processing when starting Shorewall 1.3.7.

1.3.7:

  • The 'icmp.def' file is now empty! The rules in that file were required in ipchains firewalls but are not required in Shorewall. Users who have ALLOWRELATED=No in shorewall.conf should see the Upgrade Issues.
  • A 'FORWARDPING' option has been added to shorewall.conf. The effect of setting this variable to Yes is the same as the effect of adding an ACCEPT rule for ICMP echo-request in /etc/shorewall/icmpdef. Users who have such a rule in icmpdef are encouraged to switch to FORWARDPING=Yes.
  • The loopback CLASS A Network (127.0.0.0/8) has been added to the rfc1918 file.
  • Shorewall now works with iptables 1.2.7.
  • The documentation and Web site no longer use FrontPage themes.
