Port range issue in Alias?

  • I've stumbled upon a strange issue with alias.
    I can't put more than a single port on the 1st row, but can put as many as I want in the subsequent rows.
    I've taken some screens that I am posting here to illustrate the issue.

    This one shows 2 ports separated by a colon on the first row and with that I get an error message.

    Now on this one you can see 2 ports in separate rows and this works fine.

    This last one shows a single port in the 1st row and multiple ports in rows 2 and 3.
    This one works great too.

    Don't know is this has always been like that and if it's either a feature or a bug - and I don't know if this is happening only with ports or if t also happens with networks, etc - but it sure would be nice to put ranges starting on the 1st port.

  • Don't use a comma, separate with a colon :

    ![Picture 1.png](/public/imported_attachments/1/Picture 1.png)
    ![Picture 1.png_thumb](/public/imported_attachments/1/Picture 1.png_thumb)

  • Talk about being dumb, huh?
    I can't believe sometimes I can be so god damned dumb, lol.
    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction onhel ;).

    PS: how come the comas also work in the subsequent rows?

  • Your welcome.  ;D

    Not really sure why the commas work.  As per the instructions on the Alias page, using the colon seems to be the proper way to setup your Port Ranges so I only use the colons and not the commas.
