Use Masks for IP Address Ranges
When you specify a value for the tcp.src.ports parameter in the initialization parameters file, you can use masks to specify the upper boundary of a range of IP addresses that use a specific port, multiple ports, or a range of ports.
These sample addresses specify the following information:
(199.2.4.*, 1000)—Any IPv4 address that falls in the range from 126.96.36.199 through 188.8.131.52 and uses only port 1000.
(fd00:0:0:2015:*::*, 2000-3000)—Any IPv6 address that falls in the range from fd00:0:0:2015:0:0:0:0 through fd00:0:0:2015:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff and uses a port in the range of 2000 through 3000.
(184.108.40.206/255.255.255.0, 4000-5000)—Any IPv4 address that falls in the range from 220.127.116.11 through 18.104.22.168 and uses a port in the range of 4000 through 5000.
(fd00:0:0:2015::0/48, 6000, 7000)—Any IPv6 address that falls in the range from fd00:0:0:2015:0:0:0:0 through fd00:0:0:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff and uses port 6000 or port 7000.
As shown in the sample entry above, the wildcard character (*) is supported to define an IP address pattern. You can specify up to 255 unique IP address patterns or up to 1024 characters in length, each with its own list of valid source ports. If the wildcard character is used, the optional mask is not valid.
