Firewall error, "proto 0 cannot be used"



  • 2.4.4_3, just started receiving this error, no firewall rule changes were made. The 204.x IP that's listed in the log error is the ISP gateway IP, the IP that's assigned by the ISP is static.

    There were error(s) loading the rules: /tmp/rules.debug:183: proto 0 cannot be used - The line in question reads [183]: pass  in  quick  on $WAN reply-to ( igb0 204.x.x.x ) inet proto ip  from any to any tracker 1562989607 keep state  label "USER_RULE: Easy Rule: Passed from Firewall Log View"
    

    Anyone have any advice?

    Looks like you added an easy rule somehow.

    Firewall > Rules, WAN. Find that rule and disable it.

    Try to think back how that rule was added (usually from the firewall logs) and if it can be duplicated it can be fixed.



  • I found that rule, disabled it and the messages are gone.
    But, but definitely did not click the button in the log to add it, Weird.

    thanks for the help.

    Someone did. Glad you found it.
