i have multiple access list to apply to various interfaces - however, I want to nest the access together. Is that function possible within ASA platform?

Hi Alphonso

You can nest 2 different ACLs into 1 single ACL. All you need is a notepad. Paste both ACLs, then choose the replace command in notepad to change the ACL names into one single name. Then paste it to CLI.

You can not use more than 1 ACL per interface.

Sorry, I wasn't clear...

I want to know if I can have a ACL call another ACL - if so, please provide a URL...

Regarding your notes - it confusing - is there a URL..

Can you please describe what exactly you want to achieve? When I read "ACL calling ACL" i understand a condition and when condition met, you want specific ACLs to apply. This kind of a process is called Downloadable Access Lists and work RADIUS user or group based. But as I mentioned above, if you describe what you are on to, I would make suggestions.
