    just without :1

    you first need to be in editing then

    vrf main interface ethernet ge1 ipv4 address 192.168.254.1/29

    then

    commit

    in a setup I did with it showed as working but could be some problems

    you can by SSH like

    edit running

    vrf main interface ethernet ge2 ipv4 address 192.168.254.1/29
    commit
    copy running startup

    But when you change stuff in the UI it may not stick and has to be applied again and may be problems

    I would like to create a secondary interface to my primary static WAN IP on ge1 as a virtual interface. This option is possible on the older Zyxel firewalls.

    So the command should maybe be something like this:

    vrf main interface ethernet ge1:1 ipv4 address 192.168.254.1/29

    The above gives me an error using ssh. So i guess it's not possible at the moment?

    Anyway, i think i can overcome this by using one of my available WAN IP's as IP instead of interface in one of my VPN's……
