Thanks

Re: ACL matching results

Hello Charles,

An access list counter counts how many packets are allowed by each line of the access list. This number is displayed as the number of matches. Check denotes how many times a packet was compared to the access list but did not match. An access-list anyway takes a top down approach.. so each line of the ACL is scanned before it goes to the next... so, having these parameters really makes sense !!!!

Hope this helps.. all the best.. rate replies if found usefu.
