Shorewall and Portsentry


Hello

I am having trouble getting portsentry to work with shorewall. I can run portsentry with iptables fine but as soon as I install shorewall and go to start portsentry again I get this error

I have followed the directions here exactly but am still having this problem. Here is what I'm using.

Fedora Core 2
Shorewall-2.0.3c-1
Portsentry-1.1
Iptables-1.2.9

If you need any other information posted just ask.

Thanks alot for any help.
