George -- please review http://www.shorewall.net/support.htm for clues about 
how to ask for help. The above paragraph is almost devoid of useful 

Also, you might consider posting on the Newbies list 
(shorewall-newbies at lists.shorewall.net) as the problems you are trying to 
solve sound pretty basic.

I don't offer any fee services for Shorewall. Shorewall is free software with 
free support but that means that you have to be willing and able to provide 
the information necessary to define the problem you are having. If you are 
unwilling or unable to do that then I suggest that you choose a commercial 
firewall product.
