    1638 ACL how it work ?

    matge New Member


      I have 1638 with several vlan setup . By default all the subnet can reach all each other. I want to restrict some vlan/subnet to reach others.

      example : the vlan 3 have to reach vlan 10,15,55,200 but not 20,210 & 250. Each vlan have his own dhcp server on 1638.

      vlan 250 have to reach 15,16,&17   etc..

      How could I programm this ?

          Thank you for asking this question in the support community.  The NetVanta 1638 is a Layer 3 switch, without a stateful firewall; therefore, to permit/deny access you must configure hardware access-lists (ACLs).  The guide Configuring Hardware ACLs in AOS will provide detailed information on how to design, configure and implement hardware ACLs.  Below is a very brief sample configuration:


          ip hw-access-list extended HW-BLOCK-VLANS

            deny ip

            deny ip

            permit ip any any


          hw-access-map MY-HW-MAP

            forward ip HW-BLOCK-VLANS

            vlans 3-5,10,12


          In this basic example, traffic arriving on VLANs 3-5,10,12, with a source IP address, of or with a destination of would be blocked, and everything else would be allowed/forwarded.


          I hope that concept makes sense, but after you review the guide, please let me know if you have any additional questions.  I will be happy to help in any way I can.
