Can IP networks with a netmask be used in proxy exceptions?

OK, you can enter explicit fully qualified DNS names, names with wildcards, IP addresses with wildcards in the proxy exceptions field (when configuring SmartFTP - since we need to use an FTP proxy), but can you enter an IP network including a netmask?

eg "203.7.0.0", "255.255.128.0" or perhaps somthing in / notation like
134.18.0.0/16

Hello ...

You can use wildcards:
203.7.*.*

That is really only ok when the networks you are using are aligned on an 8-bit boundary. What if the mask is /27 or /22 ???

The wildcard technique employed - are you treating the rules as simple text strings?? - isn't really flexible enough!
