Shorewall does not "RUN" on anything.

Like SuSE firewall, its only job is to setup an manage your iptables
rules in a more user friendly and intuitive way. Once shorewall loads 
your rules into its not running any more.
So if you run iptables, Shorewall makes it easier to set up
and maintain, and adjust.
