    […] ACLsWildcard Mask is a string of 32 binary digits used by the router to determine which bits of the address to examine for a match. We use wildcard masking in several places, for example: To indicate the size of a network or subnet for some routing protocols, such as OSPF. The IPv6 ACLs uses prefix-length to indicate how much of an IPv6 source or destination address should be matched. […]


  4. General Guidelines for Creating ACLs » Networkustad

    […] Access Control List (ACL) configuration is not an easy task. There may be multiple policies required to manage the type of traffic allowed to enter or exit to the interface. Suppose we have a router with two interfaces. Both interfaces configured with IPv4 and IPv6. If we required ACLs for both IPv4 and IPv6, on both interfaces and in both directions (inbound and outbound), each interface required four ACLs, one ACL for IPv4, one ACL for IPv6, one ACL for inbound traffic and one ACL for outbound traffic.
