#19477 new defect

NAT loopback is not configured when wan interface named different

The script


requires the wan interface to be called 'wan', otherwise the reflection rules will not be generated. At least if only one interface is in the wan zone the name should be determined dynamically. Since the correct rules may be hard to figure out automatically for multiple wan ports, at least in luci a warning should be issued if the situation is not unambiguous. For me, the problem occurred when I introduced a second interface to make the transition between providers smooth. Since the old interface wan was not assigned to a hardware interface, it was not obvious that the reason for not creating the rules was the interface name. (To find out that the rules are not generated took me already 1 day ;-) Maybe the failing of the script should be reported back to luci ...)
