Empty Access List

Dear all ,

I wonder what would an empty access list on a cisco router behave like , I know if there is any statement in it and all other is implicit deny , but what if we dont write anything in it ..

Eg :

(Conf)# ip access-list {extended|standard} "name"

---- Go to interface s0/0 ----

ip access-group "name" out

Notice there is no statement inside the named access list , Will implicitly deny rule apply to this case or not ..

appreciate you reply

Re: Empty Access List

If you create an access list and apply it (with an access-group), the implicit deny is active.

Simply creating an access-list has no effect. Once you apply it, it's active, empty or not.

Good Luck

Re: Empty Access List

Hi,

An interface with an empty access list applied to it permits all traffic.

HTH,

Thanks
