IP-Address validation BUG in Network Settings


#1

The IP address 1.2.255.1 is a valid IP address. however, the WD does not accept IP’s with a “255” in one of the octets of the gateway or own address. (yes, I have the latest firmware on the unit) Would be nice if this could be fixed soon, because I can not assign an IP from my home address range. lutz

That’s interesting!   An interesting choice for home subnet, that is… :slight_smile:

Just FYI, you might want to post this in the IDEAS lab or call tech support…  This part of the forum may go unnoticed by the WD staff.

this is not my real home ip subnet, but I have xxx.xxx.255.21 as a valid ip.

thanks for pointing the direction.
