Bad interface name

Asked by les

Is there a reason to restrict interface's name in ufw?
Should ufw accept what iptables accept as iface name?

I've a vpn with lot of nodes, its iface name contain a '-' so cannot use ufw on it.

I've found the check here and cannot found a reason for it:

You could report a bug.

You can also use udev rules to set the interface name

Can you help with this problem?
