Bug Description

Ubuntu 16.04 4.4.0-38
Gufw 16.04.1

If I try to define a port range using a : as delimiter as explained by the help message which appears when hovering the mouse over the port field, it is impossible to save the rule: the add button remains greyed out:
If I use a - instead, the rule can be saved but is rejected as error: "port 5900-5902 > ERROR: Bad port '5900-5902'"

There is no way out of this issue.

Hi, if the add button is disabled is because you can't add that rule because a groups of parameters (try to remove the IP, change things until you see it enabled).
Best regards.

You can't be any deafer. Denying an issue won't make it go away.
Cf. attachment.

It seems that the '-' delimiter has been recently implemented, so at least we have a solution now. But the help string is still incorrect.

This is still an issue - as soon as you use a colon to specify a port range, the "Add" button gets disabled:

Yes, this is a ufw limitation. Thanks for the feedback!

Deafness is the real issue here :-(
