Port forward rule linking

  • I like how when you create a port forward, there is a corresponding firewall rule created.  However, it seems like the functionality needs to be more consistent.  From what I can tell, after that initial linking, the rules still operate independently of each other.  For instance, if I disable the firewall rule, or edit it's description, nothing happens to the port forward, and vice versa.  Also, the "pass linked rule" indicator on the port forward screen goes away after disabling and re-enabling one or the other, even though the port forward "filter rule association" still remains intact.

    The bottom line is that apparently, the "filter rule association" only works at the initial creation, and once anything is changed, that association is broken.
