Features common to all ACLs

  • Any ACL can have multiple entries (ACEs).

  • A source or destination IP address and a mask, together, can define a single host, a range of hosts, or all hosts.

You can configure ACLs using either the CLI or a text editor. The text-editor method is recommended when you plan to create or modify an ACL that has more entries than you can easily enter or edit using the CLI alone. See Creating or editing ACLs offline.
