Tried just removing shorewall if you are not using it?

"apt-get remove --purge shorewall" if using deb.

file name might be slightly different

/etc/default/shorewall

startup=0

Hi;

You have to change line in /etc/shorewall/shorewall.conf file.
The line is:


STARTUP_ENABLED=Yes

Open in new window

to
STARTUP_ENABLED=No

Open in new window
