           Summary: doc fix: --dport port[,port] should be --dport
           Product: iptables
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: trivial
          Priority: P3
         Component: unknown
        AssignedTo: laforge at netfilter.org
        ReportedBy: ftobin+netfilter at neverending.org

The documentation in the iptables(8) manpage describing how to specify a range
for --dport indicates that that the syntax is
  --destination-port,--dport port[,port]
I believe it should be just like --sport (that is, with a colon between the
  --source-port,--sport port[:port]

The syntax as indicated with a comma does not work, and creates a usage error.
