How to consolidate two networks on one access-list?

Unanswered Question
Jul 14th, 2009

Imagine that I need to write an access-list to allow traffic to and

Then I wrote down the binary for both of them and tried to find a pattern. If I do I also include "229.0-255.0-255.0-255" and that does not work though.

11100100 = 228

11100111 = 231

That's a multicast range so what exactly are you trying to do?

The subnet as you stated should work but it depends on the use of this filtering.

The respective exercise asked to 'advertise a given router as the RP for and'.

So I would use 'ip pim send-rp-announce loopback0 scope 20 group-list .

So I was trying to consolidate the respective access-list on one line if possible but I so far I can't see how to do that...

So does your access list read:

access list 1 allow any

and then, under the relevant interface:

ip access-group 1 in


Are their any other access lists applied to the interface(s)?

In this case, it would be applied on a router part of the multicast RP configuration as shown below (I separated the access-lists since it is nto clear to me if it is possible to write this using just one access-list entry).

config t

#ip pim send-rp-announce loopback0 scope 20 group-list 1

access-list 1 permit

access-list 1 permit

That's the right syntax. The requirements is to advertise and not from to - if I understood your post correctly.

It seems you are studying for a CCIE and reading the requirements correctly is a fundamental part of the exam.
