Release Notes:


It would be nice to be able to specify multiple URL table aliases within one network type alias. For instance I just setup a firewall that blocks a few countries using URL Table aliases, being able to add those to a "BlockedCountries" alias instead would make the ruleset a lot smaller. Input validation currently rejects this.

Evgeny - this is ok but in the future please don't commit anything with a target 2.1 to 2.0.

I am sorry, did not pay attention to target version, just felt that it was doable.

This is probably broken in the case when the urltablealias contents change and pfSense reloads the alias but not its nested variant.
Also if there are too many entries it adds quite an overhead to the filter reload, possibly should add the other entries to the urltable alias file and make that persist?

This needs to be backed out and moved to target 2.1 for fixing, putting URL table aliases within network aliases results in a blank alias in the rules.
