Aliases - best practice for multiple host subnets
I want to block several subnets so I set up a alias. When I add a network such as
The GUI translates that to single addresses instead of a subnet. This works, but after a few subnets the list of addresses in the alias starts getting pretty long. Is there a better way I should be approaching this? One subnet per alias and then use a "master" alias? Is there a limit to how many individual addresses I should use per alias?
huh? Where are you seeing that as single address an not a network?
Thanks for the screenshot. I didn't realize I could set it to networks. I had it set to hosts and when I would enter a subnet EG 126.96.36.199/24, it would expand that to 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11, etc with 18.104.22.168 showing twice.
The 24 address twicw is probably a bug but I now understand what it was doing and a much better way to manage subnets.
Not sure what you mean by 24 twice? But when you pick hosts it states that if you put IPs in via a range or mask that they will be expanded
"An IP range such as 192.168.1.1-192.168.1.10 or a small subnet such as 192.168.1.16/28 may also be entered and a list of individual IP addresses will be generated."
