Re 6.3 PIX

Cannot see a "Description" type command for this but want to add clarity to the rulebase - also we do not use a PDM to manage - just CLI - thanks

I you are talking about ACL desription you need to use "remark"


access-list 101 remark --access to outside--


Hope that helps rate if it does

I don't have access to a test firewall until later tonight. However I happen to have an acl 100 that is about 25 lines long. Can you use the "remark" command in the specific line as the actual acl - or would I have to have a remark line preceding each and every one of the 25 constituent lines that comprise acl 100?

For example:

access-list 100 remark --allow tacacs--access-list 100 permit host eq tacacs

access-list 100 remark --allow DNS--

access-list 100 permit host eq domain

access-list 100 remark --allow other stuff--

access-list 100 permit host eq otherstuff

and so on ??
