I've NEVER used an acl in the outbound direction. Can someone explain what the benefits are to doing this?
Suppose I have a web server in a DMZ addressed as 192.168.1.50. I could have an acl like:
permit tcp any host 192.168.1.50
deny ip any any
I could apply this inbound. Why would I want to apply this outbound? Or, would it even make sense to apply an acl like this outbound?
