Access Control List (ACL) Feature Overview and Configuration Guide

An Access Control List is one filter, or a sequence of filters, that are applied to an interface to either block or pass (or when using QoS, apply priority to) packets that match the filter definitions. ACLs are used to restrict network access by hosts and devices and to control network traffic.

Access Control Lists used in AlliedWare Plus are separated into two different types, software ACLs and hardware ACLs. Hardware ACLs are applied directly to interfaces, or are used for QoS classifications. Software ACLs are applied to Routing and Multicasting.

This guide describes Access Control Lists (ACLs), and general ACL configuration information.
