Bug #253

Cannot edit a Firewall rule listing multiple ports in the LuCI gui

New Urgent Dave Täht


Trying to edit a firewall rule in the LuCI gui such as one of the defaults with a Destination of “Device: 53 433 873” is impossible.

The GUI’s javascript form validation rejects the port form field because it is not a single number but has spaces in it.

Our configuration of /etc/config/firewall predates LOTs of changes to the firewall interfaces. I don’t think luci kept up - and I don’t think the firewall rule generator uses multiport matches, for this sort of thing, either, generating one rule per port entry.

It would be good if the syntax for /etc/config/firewall matched /etc/config/qos.

I’ll look into this deeper in the morning. Thx for testing!

Syncing luci-app-firewall with the current firewall v2r27 features is on my ToDo but I need to get backfire done first.
