Hi Tom

Thanks for your answer - good to know. That does help.

"Symbolic constant" means I can change that in a single line of perl
code - right?

If I would attempt to create a patch for making that a shorewall.conf
option, would you consider including such a change in the release?

(If it's not a config option, or even if I create a working patch, but
it's not going to be in the release, I need to keep patching after each
shorewall package update. I will not have any system running without
