There is something I do not understand:
I use shorewall 1.2.10 + the two-interfaces sample
with that setup I cannot ping the internet from the firewall.

So I put
ACCEPT		fw	net	icmp	8
in rules
and shorewall restart

Then I can ping OK from fw to net

Now I comment out this again in rules
I shorewall restart
I can still ping the net from fw ?
Why ?
