Those comment lines that end each of the configuration files are there

I just re-read this and noticed that the OP switched from maclist to nat
(doesn't say which form of nat). All forms of NAT work in Shorewall so
you are doing something wrong. Again, please give us some details;
complaining that "it doesn't work" may get you sympathy but it
definitely won't get your problem solved.
