End the ACL service name insanity...

Unanswered Question

Various cisco platforms have built-in service names.  The

list varies from platform to platform and over software releases.

Unless I miss something, there's no way to add or remove

service names.  Also there is no way to tell a "show access list"

or "show run" command to use port numbers instead of service


These service names are not unified with the PAM, either.

It makes migrations a total pain.

So either allow config directives to put in missing service names

a-la PAM, or an editable /etc/services type file, or put a flag on the

show run command to get rid of service and hostnames a-la

the ASA's "no names" mode for hostnames.

I have this problem too.
