Kindly let me know if there is a version compatibility issue between
Shorewall 1.4 and iptables. Last month I received an update that seemed to
have upgraded iptables in my Linux box. When I tried to reboot, Shorewall
would not start, it would bring up a message complaining of a syntax error.
Thank you for your time,

Please see http://shorewall.net/troubleshoot.htm under "'shorewall
start' and 'shorewall restart' Errors". A newer version of iptables
should never break Shorewall so I'll need a trace as described in at the
above link before I can tell you what might be wrong.
One note -- if you updated iptables but did not install the
corresponding kernel update, your iptables may be incompatible with your
kernel; this is one of the most common sources of iptables-reported errors.
