Bug Description

Binary package hint: shorewall6

In the 2nd column of the last 3 lines of /usr/share/doc/shorewall6/examples/three-interfaces/zones you will see that the type is ipv4 instead of ipv6, but shorewall6 is for ipv6 so this will not work.
This also makes me wonder if the whole example isn't just copy-pasted from (a maybe old version of) shorewall with only some minor changes in for example the name...
I marked this as security vulnerability because i no longer trust this example config.

Thanks for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but this appears to be a "regular" (non-security) bug. I have unmarked it as a security issue since this bug does not show evidence of allowing attackers to cross privilege boundaries nor directly cause loss of data/privacy. Please feel free to report any other bugs you may find.

security vulnerability: yes → no
