Re: how to block a vlan

Hi there,

the need you stated above, sounds to me like you want "VLAN 40" to be able to initiate connections to other vlans and be able to get a response from them, but other VLANs shouldnt be able to initiate a connection towards VLAN40.

if this is the case you could either configure Reflexive Access Lists, or standard/extended permit ACLs with established keyword, you can find detailed explanation in the link below:

Hope it Helps,
