Add warning about usage of special aliases
Change the last sentance of the section from this:
The PUBLIC_ADDRESS can either be the external IP address or the special keyword 0/32, which means to use the IP address assigned to IF.
The PUBLIC_ADDRESS can either be the external IP address or the special aliase 0/32, which means to use the public routable IP address assigned to IF.
And then add this.
These special aliases |0.32|, |0/0| and |0/32|, only work in IPNAT's map and bimap rules. They do NOT work in IPF rules, or in IPNAT rdr rules. Beware how and where you use these special aliases as incorrect usage generates no errors.
