Confusing ACL

Answered Question
Feb 20th, 2010

I came across this ACL command during the course of my studies and didn't understand it.  Up until I saw this I hadn't seen anything above the multicast range be used as the destination address in an ACL.  What traffic would this identify?  How would this affect an inbound distribute list?

access-list 101 permit ip


I have this problem too.

That's for filtering a supernet

Much easier to write it as a prefix list

So something like

ip prefix-list PFX_TEST permit

would do the same thing?
