About AFM address and port lists

AFM Network Firewall uses Address and Port lists to collect multiple IP addresses and service ports in single configuration objects. Firewall policies are then configured to reference the appropriate address and port list. While you can create firewall policies that contain many individual IP address and service port entries, F5 recommends creating and associating address and port lists with your firewall policies to simplify administration.
