For what it's worth, I had exactly the same problem and ended up getting rid of Shorewall - now I use Msec 'high' setting and looking for a firewall that doesn't need a networking qualification to set up ;-).

Judging from other threads/forums, a lot of people have problems with Shorewall.

I wonder why they got rid of tinyfirewall - for the average end user it was easy to set up, gave stealth readings and it worked practically out of the box....
