The reason for this was for a simple redundant connection so I added:

eth0:=09=09192.168.1.0/24
eth2=09=09192.168.1.0/24

to /etc/shorewall/masq

Really no complicated routing going on, but it is possable to shutdown et=
h2 if=20
the link goes down and bring up eth0 (assuming it's link is up) then rest=
art=20
shorewall.

This works nice for a cheap redundancy solution, all I'm missing are some=
=20
scripts to check the state of the interfaces and bring them up and down=20
accordingly.

IMHO, having a two connections up on the machine makes it that more vulne=
rable=20
so we strayed from that configuration.
