Description

Just a convinience alias, much like "LAN net", "LAN address", etc.

Primary usecase if for explicitly blocking targeted bcasts on WAN side, to prevent them from cluttering all the log when default block rule logging is enabled.
But also may be used on LAN in conjunction with pvlan-capable switch, should such need arise.

Note: If this gets implemented, input validation should reject choosing this with IPv6 or IPv4+6 rules since IPv6 has no concept of a broadcast address.

#2 Updated by Jim Pingle 27 days ago

  • Subject changed from Please, add "THIS_IF broadcast" dynamic alias for use in firewall rules to Please, add "THIS_IF broadcast" Macro for use in firewall rules
