HAproxy in pfsense 2.42-p1 creating a new frontend with a Shared Frontend issues invalid ip error
This has existing since 2.3.x and has been worked around for some time.
We use a haproxy shared frontend for a common ssl cert.
When adding a new host to this config , pfsense responds with the following error
The following input errors were detected:
is not a valid source IP address or alias.
There is noting useful in syslog when this bug is generated.
The work around is to clone an existing config and edit that one to fit your needs.

Would be nice to know what your config looks like. As it doesn't seem to happen here. Can you share the <haproxy> section from a pfSense configuration backup? (obfuscate passwords/ips and other sensitive info where needed..)
Is there a way to privately share this config ?

The new package 0.55_2 should skip the check on 'secondary' frontends.
That should 'fix' the error reported..

The haproxy-devel 0.55_2 package will be build after the pull request is 'accepted' by official pfSense developers..
Before then you can 'manually' use the SystemPatches by adding the patch like this:
Ignore Whitespace: Checked
Save these settings, then press 'Fetch', and 'Apply'
