Shorewall interfaces can have both a logical and a physical name.


wan     WAN_IF          physical=eth0

The logical name is WAN_IF; that name is normally used elsewhere in the
configuration files to refer to the interface. The physical name of the
interface is eth0, which is of course the name of the interface as known
to the kernel.

If the 'physical' option is not specified, then the physical and logical
names are the same.
