Description of problem:
According "man iptables-extensions", iptables should accept port ranges when min > max:
> If the first port is greater than the second one they will be swapped.
But if I try to run iptables with this port range, i got error:
# iptables -t filter -A INPUT -m tcp --sport 6500:6400 -j ACCEPT
iptables v1.4.21: invalid portrange (min > max)
Try `iptables -h' or 'iptables --help' for more information
I guess there is outdated documentation since c8f28cc8b84133f20421470e9a61a5a0c78b9c4a (2011-01-20).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
but applicable to all current versions of Fedora and RHEL
