Alias



  • Hi !

    Anyone found a way to define a protocol grout where there are mixed protocols inside (for example VPN with TCP and UDP protocols) ?
    Or is it really the right way to define two separate groups - one for UDP and the other for TCP ?

    Furthermore why is it not possible to use underscores or else for alias-names ?

    This is a limitation of pf.



  • Perhaps an issue to be changed !?
    think for a couple of protocol groups that are mixed with TCP/UDP or GRE, whatever, ex. VPN-rules.
    ok, you could set up separate rules for each protocol, but would be nicer to disable the protocol-button when a port-alias is used… !?



  • An option to be considered would be to create one Alias for such a group and create one rule for it in the webgui. The backend then can create a bunch of rules that only display as one rule at the frontend. Backend and frontend don't need to be the same here.  I agree that this would be something nice to have (maybe there are other options, but here is the place to discuss  ;) ) but main focus atm is getting to release status. Maybe after 1.0 is out. We should keep the thought…



  • Nice :-)

    would be an interesting idea…

    keep on to the release state !!!
