Can't set monitoring address due to bug

  • When i removed, saved, then tried to put in a simple ip address i got this error message on the System: Gateways: Edit gateway page

    The following input errors were detected:

    The IPv6 monitor address '' can not be used with a IPv4 gateway'.

    I scanned this forum briefly to find some similar comment but for now i hope this is helpful and doesn't get me flamed by some admin. I used this product for an eternity now.

  • Is there a space involved?

    i have not seen that message in a few weeks. Maybe a variable wrong in the code. Not sure.

    Just to be sure. If you have any gateways defined you need to edit and save those and see if it voes away.

  • There is no space involved just x.x.x.x, i am very aware to check for excess chars in input feilds having experienced it before.

    Bug still there, basically i have no way to change any settings or edit the gateway unless i remove the monitor ip now because it ALWAYs says there is an ipv6 address there and creates an error if i open the gateway editing section.
    Thanks for your reply.


  • Will need to investigate.

  • seems to happen only with static gateways.

  • Just checked in another attempt, because we now know the address family (because we have a drop down) that makes this a lot easier to get right.
