comment How to make sense of an iptables chain configuration
@Lumi Shorewall is an tool to build rules for iptables. It uses the same model for rule sets as I see in your description above. I pointed to the documentation as it describes this sort of configuration.

comment Allow IP packet forwarding from LAN to modem via router
@Lumi As all your ports have the same MAC address, the WAN and LAN ports are would be on the same network. Normally, routes like this have two default VLANs configured. Try ifconfig | less to get a list of configured network devices.

comment Best way to find out what Linux Version is used on a Webserver
The URL doesn't tell you anything about the O/S you are connecting to. The response headers may tell you what O/S is in use, or they may provide a complete falsehood if the administrator chooses.

comment Disable user shell for security reasons
Some email systems allow use of their own password mechanisms. I use Dovecot and Exim with an email only password. This allows use of webmail on servers I would not use my system password. Virtual email domains require their own password as they aren't coupled to the servers password system.
