Hi,


Access-list are just ways to allows or deny hosts based on few parameter like Destination,Source IP address, port, protocols etc.


Whereas , Route-Maps are the way to Policy Based Routing in Cisco IOS.


Route-Maps are like software programming,

1.you can use to manipulate the whether routes can be installed in the routing table or not ,

2.to what extent the metric of route needs to changed,

3.In BGP to change/set the attributes of routes.


Many of the times Route-Maps make use of access-lists


e.g


access-list 10 permit 192.168.1.0 0.0.0.255


route-map test-route-map

match ip address 10


In above example route-map test-route-map used the access-list 10 to match the IP Addresses.


HTH...rate if helpful...

Is there any guide about how to use route-maps?

I still not quite sure how it works.
