address <address>

address <address>

Specifies an address to match.

Address formats are as follows:

  • <address-group-name>: An address group that is configured with a list of addresses.
  • <ip-address>: An IPv4 address.
  • <ip-address/prefix>: An IPv4 network, where 0.0.0.0/0 matches any prefix.
  • !<ip-address>: All IP addresses except the specified IPv4 address.
  • !<ip-address/prefix>: All IP addresses except the specified IPv4 network prefix.
  • <ipv6-address>: An IPv6 address; for example, fe80::20c:29fe:fe47:f89.
  • <ip-address/prefix>: An IPv6 network prefix, where ::/0 matches any prefix; for example, fe80::20c:29fe:fe47:f88/64.
  • !<ipv6-address>: All IPv6 addresses except the specified IPv6 address.
  • !<ip-address/prefix>: All IPv6 prefixes except the specified IPv6 network prefix.
Note: If you specify both an address and a port then the system will treat a packet as a match only when both its address and its port values match those specifications.
