Name

ip access-list — global

Synopsis

ip access-list {standard | extended} name

Configures

Named access lists

Default

None

Description

This command allows you to create a named access list. A named access list is really no different from a numbered access list as defined by the access-list command, except that it is identified by a logical name. A named access list may be either standard or extended. This command is followed by permit and deny commands that specify the access-list rules. For more about access lists, see Chapter 7 and the discussion of the access-list command.

Example

The following commands define a named access list that allows HTTP traffic from any host to the server at 10.1.2.3 and permits all other TCP traffic that has the SYN flag set. Remember that all access lists end with an implicit deny, which rejects all traffic not permitted by a statement in the access list.

ip access-list extended bogus-firewall
  permit tcp any host 10.1.2.3 eq http
  permit tcp any any established

As of IOS 12.4, you can enter noncontiguous ports on a single line within a named access list. Before, you would write such an access list like this:

ip access-list extended acllist1
  permit tcp any host 192.168.1.1 eq telnet
  permit tcp any host 192.168.1.1 eq www
  permit tcp any host 192.168.1.1 eq smtp
  permit tcp any host 192.168.1.1 eq pop3

With noncontigious port support, you can write it more tersely:

ip access-list extended acllist1
  permit tcp any host 192.168.1.1 eq telnet www smtp pop3
