[Shorewall-users] HOWTO: Temporary dynamic blocking with Shorewall and Portsentry

One more suggestion about the HOWTO -- the dynamic black list isn't
automatically restored after a "shorewall restart" (or "shorewall stop;
shorewall start") unless a "shorewall save" is done. Might be worth
adding that to portsentry.temp.block:

# Block the bad guy.
/sbin/shorewall drop $1
/sbin/shorewall save
