fwsm- adding protocol object groups

Answered Question
Jul 31st, 2008

I am trying to create ACL using object groups which contain protocols in 6500 FWSM configuration.

I have a list of protocols that has to be identified by tcp port numner;

for example: tcp ports 33000, 8095, 8090 etc. But I can only see the protocol numbers only in the range of 0 to 255 in the FWSM ocnfig.

Is there any other way that I can group this protocoil numnbers ?

I have this problem too.

You need to add a service object (layer 4 service) and not a protocol object (layer 3 protocol like ospf,tcp,udp etc.)
