Possibly Mandrake can -- You have upgraded from one version of Mandrake to
another and now you are posting on the Shorewall list asking what went
wrong. Does that seem right to you? Doesn't to me.

At any rate, you might look at FAQ #4 as I suspect that the answer to your
question is there somewhere.

No it isn't -- there is no such Shorewall version.
