Conduits or ACLs?

I started using conduits. and I keep seeing others using ACL, I think I read somewhere you are not really suppose to mix the two.

What are the +'s and -'s of each?

Thanks,

Re: Conduits or ACLs?

Hi,

If you are starting to configure your Pix, then I would highly recommend that you use Access-lists. If you are a Cisco IOS Guy, then you will find configuring ACLs real easy and this was one of the main reason that ACLs were introduced in Pix Version 5.3 and higher.

You can also refer the below URL for more info:

Re: Conduits or ACLs?

Thanks, I'll check it out...

I've already configured the PIX and have several (30+) Conduit commands. Should I be converting them all to ACL? Am I right that you should not really mix the Two?

Can I mix them while I'm converting them? What if a ACL and conduit are doing the same thing for a minute or few?

Thanks,

Scott<-
