Yes, but packages on the Shared Media do reach your firewall via eth1, and
your firewall yould leak ip packets via eth1. Thats why it makes sence to
block all packets on eth1. You can alos remove the ip address from that
interface, but personally i would not trust the kernel to actually ignore
packets in all situations.
