Fixed In:

Opened: Jul 29, 2015
Severity: 3-Major


When we save a rule with protocol set to icmp_v6 and then try to access it again, the protocol information is not shown.


The protocol field appears to be empty in the GUI.


Protocol name fields stored in mcp and postgres do not match. tmsh returns "IPV6_ICMP" and postgres returns "ICMPV6"


Use tmsh to update/edit icmp_v6 based rules.

Fix Information

The firewall policy editor now properly handles protocol selection icmp_v6.
