ACLs on Catalyst Switch

I need to quote 2 x Catalyst 3550-12T switches for my customer with the ACLs feature. Does the Catalyst 3550-12T support the ACLs for all port ? If yes, does the ACLs still works when one of the (10 x 10/100/1000Base T ports)port was detected only 10Mbps speed. Plese Advise.

Re: ACLs on Catalyst Switch

The Catalyst 3550 switch with the enhanced multilayer switch image supports two methods of forwarding traffic between interfaces: routing and fallback bridging. Whenever possible, to maintain high performance, forwarding is done by switch hardware. However, only IP version 4 packets with Ethernet II encapsulation can be routed in hardware. All other types of traffic can be fallback bridged by hardware.

Packets received on a port are forwarded only to ports that belong to the same VLAN as the receiving port. Network devices in different VLANs cannot communicate with one another without a Layer 3 device to route traffic between the VLANs.

Ports need to be assigned to different vlans (different layer 3 subnets) for acls to work.
