Can you please give me an example how I can define source ports for a Bandwidth Manager rules? I was unable to find a example in the online manual.

In the Add/Edit Rule window, on the Source tab, I am entering 'Specific' in the Source Port box, but getting this error: "Incorrect input: for a specific port TCP or UDP must be used".

Simply choose IPv4 TCP/UDP under the protocol section on the General tab.

The concept of ports is only valid for transport protocols such as TCP and UDP. If the rule is configured to capture some other protocol(s), it will not let you choose ports, just as you describe.
