Your two threads have been merged, because they are about the same problem. Please don't double-post. There's an 'edit' button on the right below your post. If you decide you need to give more details, use it.

Member Intro is a great place to say hello, but technical questions(like this one) are much better in a more technical forum like Linux-Newbie. That's why the thread is moved.

To run shorewall you need both iptables and tc (from iproute package). You need to install them before shorewall. Depending on your distribution, the method of installation is different. The packages you need are on your installation cd (or any other media you used).
