Problem with aliases on RC2i



  • I have updated today from g to i and when I changed several aliases hosts I got the following error on reload:

    There were error(s) loading the rules: /tmp/rules.debug:217: 65.161.127.149 is not a numberpfctl: Syntax error in config file: pf rules not loaded - The line in question reads [217]: table  { 82.85.3.78.86….........

    Best wishes, Marcel

    ps. I have changed the IP numbers displayed above



  • Can you please post the complete alert? You'll find it in the systemlogs.



  • :-[ :o ;D

    The problem is solved and I made a typo in one of the 50 addresses and a "/" was at the end of the IP number.
    On reload I don't get any warnings anymore to my relief.

    Thanks for your reply Hoba and I sorry to for any inconvienance on your side caused by my TYPO.

    Best wishes, Marcel



  • No problem, it's better this way than discovering a serious bug  ;D

    I know you've marked this as solved, but where was the typo?  In the alias input screen?  If so, maybe we're missing a validation check that should have caught that.
