Unhappy About shorewall

I try to configure a shorewall in my slackware but whenI give #shorewall start this stop and answer is

Try `iptables -h' or 'iptables --help' for more information.
ERROR: Command "/usr/sbin/iptables -A eth0_masq -s -j SNAT --to-source" Failed
Processing /etc/shorewall/stop ...
IPv4 Forwarding Enabled
Processing /etc/shorewall/stopped ...
/sbin/shorewall: line 742: 12741 Terminated $SHOREWALL_SHELL ${VARDIR}/.restart $debugging restart
