Works for me.

Subject: IpHeadersFilter (Re: Address ranges)

Yes, this is an oversight.  We need to fix IpHeadersFilter to support
ranges.  Good catch Casey!

The current class definition is:

NAME IpHeadersFilter
DESCRIPTION A class representing an entire IP
header filter, or any subset of one.
DERIVED FROM FilterEntryBase
TYPE Concrete
PROPERTIES HdrIpVersion, HdrSrcAddress, HdrSrcMask,
HdrDestAddress, HdrDestMask, HdrProtocolID,
HdrSrcPortStart, HdrSrcPortEnd,
HdrDestPortStart, HdrDestPortEnd, HdrDSCP,

I suggest the following changes.

Add HdrSrcAddressEndOfRange and HdrDestAddressEndOfRange.  When non-null,
the start of range value is in the corresponding HdrXxxxAddress property.
When null, the corresponding HdrXxxxAddress property is interpreted as today
as a single address filter that may have a mask.  And the
HdrXxxxAddressEndOfRange properties MUST be null when their corresponding
HdrXxxxMask property is non-null and vice-versa (i.e., no mask on ranges).

For consistency, I'd also have us rename the HdrXxxxPortStart properties to
drop the "Start" and rename the HdrXxxxPortEnd properties to "EndOfRange"
and change the semantics so that the EndOfRange properties are null when the
filter is not specifying a port range instead of the current both values are
the same definition.
