[Solved] Quick Question about Automatic CIDR generation on firewall rules
I am trying to create a firewall rule where a certain network can access a port on a local server.
I assumed to create a firewall rule to a "single host", I would use CIDR: 192.168.1.102/32, meaning 32 bits in the mask. Yet when I select the drop down for "single host or alias", it auto populates the mask to /31, which yields hosts: 192.168.1.102-103.
I don't want .103 active, why can't I specify /32? Is /32 somehow an invalid CIDR?
Single host just ignore the netmask pulldown and put in the host address. It really should hide instead of switching to /31.
Thanks! That makes sense.
I should have realized it when it turned grey it was no longer being considered, but it also tries to calculate it then turns it grey which threw me off.
