Removing IP from alias doesnt take affect until reboot

  • So i have a list IPs that are allowed to connect to my pfsense from the outside world.
    yesterday i added in a new public IP that i wanted to temporarily allow access to my firewall/forwarded ports.
    When i was all done, i removed that IP from the my Alias., applied the changes etc. Yet that IP continued to be able to access my network. I even reset all network states but that no affect.
    Only after i rebooted the pfsense, was that IP not able to access my network anymore.

    So it seems like some sort of flush/reset is not done even removing an entry from Alias.
    is this a bug or am i missing a step?
    im running the latest pf sense release.
