You can't use a named access-list with CAR when you configure rate-limiting with the interface command 'rate-limit'

Cisco are trying to phase this out in favour of MQC. So you can use a named ACL is you use MQC as per below:

ip access-list extended MY_ACL

permit any any

class-map match-all MATCH_ACL

match access-group name MY_ACL

policy-map NETPRO


police cir 128000

interface Serial0/0

service-policy input NETPRO

Hello Josepho,

no you cannot used named ACLs to define traffic to be rate limited



only numbered ACLs are accepted.

An alternative way can be that of using Modular QoS that uses class-maps and policy-maps.

Hope to help

I have tried the MQC method but it don't have any effect, I am sending 10Meg and receiving that 10 Meg on the remote side. My devics are 7609 and 7613 Cisco routers.
