What I'm saying here is that conditional routing isn't easy (and is only 
vaguely related to Shorewall. To do conditional routing, you must set up 
multiple routing tables then create rules to use packets from some hosts to 
use an alternate table. Shorewall can be used to mark the packets for later 
assignment to a routing table).

But Shorewall has facilities for permitting connections conditionally 
between interfaces; which is what I think you want.
