Best Practice for where to apply ACL's on a router

I have a 1760 router with a 4 port ethernet card. It has the Vlan1 int on it for f0/0 in the IOS. I need to apply an ACL to that interface/subnet with the phyical cable in f0/0 and ip range of vlan1. When appling the ACL should I apply it to the physical interface or the Vlan (mgt) interface. What is the best practice and is there any docs on this on cisco?

Thanks

Chris

The f0/0 is operating as a switch port and as such you can not apply the access list directly to the physical interface. You should apply the access list to the vlan interface.
