The real configuration of Shorewall didn't have the error.
The error was in NetworksPage. Months ago when I changed

I've revised the /etc/shorewall/masq section of NetworksPage
according to the real life.
Reference manual page shorewall-masq(5)
Outgoing interfacelist. ...

/etc/shorewall/masq, "eth0 172.24.0.0/16" means that subnets
172.24.0.0/16 are hidden behind eth0; not that eth0 is behind 172.24.0.0.
