IPv6 PACL Support

IPv6 PACL Support

The IPv6 PACL feature permits or denies the movement of traffic between Layer 3 subnets and VLANs, or within a VLAN.

Finding Feature Information

Your software release may not support all the features documented in this module. For the latest caveats and feature information, see Bug Search Tool and the release notes for your platform and software release. To find information about the features documented in this module, and to see a list of the releases in which each feature is supported, see the feature information table at the end of this module.

Use Cisco Feature Navigator to find information about platform support and Cisco software image support. To access Cisco Feature Navigator, go to www.cisco.com/​go/​cfn. An account on Cisco.com is not required.

Prerequisites for IPv6 PACL Support

In order to use the IPv6 port-based access control list (PACL) feature, you must know how to configure IPv6 access lists.

Information About IPv6 PACL Support

IPv6 Port-Based Access Control List Support

The IPv6 PACL feature provides the ability to provide access control (permit or deny) on Layer 2 switch ports for IPv6 traffic. IPv6 PACLs are similar to IPv4 PACLs, which provide access control on Layer 2 switch ports for IPv4 traffic. They are supported only in the ingress direction and in hardware.

A PACL can filter ingress traffic on Layer 2 interfaces based on Layer 3 and Layer 4 header information or non-IP Layer 2 information.

How to Configure IPv6 PACL Support

Configuring PACL Mode and Applying IPv6 PACL on an Interface

Before You Begin

Before you configure the IPv6 PACL feature, you must configure an IPv6 access list. Once you have configured the IPv6 access list, you must configure the port-based access control list (PACL) mode on the specified IPv6 Layer 2 interface.

SUMMARY STEPS

    1.    enable

    2.    configure terminal

    3.    ipv6 access-list access-list-name

    4.    exit

    5.    interface type number

    6.    ipv6 traffic-filter access-list-name {in | out}

    7.    end


DETAILED STEPS
     Command or ActionPurpose
    Step 1 enable


    Example:
    Device> enable
     

    Enables privileged EXEC mode.

    • Enter your password if prompted.
     
    Step 2 configure terminal


    Example:
    Device# configure terminal
     

    Enters global configuration mode.

     
    Step 3 ipv6 access-list access-list-name


    Example:
    Device(config)# ipv6 access-list list1
     

    Defines an IPv6 ACL and enters IPv6 access list configuration mode.

     
    Step 4exit


    Example:
    Device(config-ipv6-acl)# exit
     

    Exits IPv6 access list configuration mode and enters global configuration mode.

     
    Step 5 interface type number


    Example:
    Device(config)# interface fastethernet 0/0
     

    Specifies an interface type and number and enters interface configuration mode.

     
    Step 6 ipv6 traffic-filter access-list-name {in | out}


    Example:
    Device(config-if)# ipv6 traffic-filter list1 in
     

    Filters incoming and outgoing IPv6 traffic on an interface.

     
    Step 7end


    Example:
    Device(config-if)# end
     

    Exits interface configuration mode and enters privileged EXEC mode.

     

    Configuration Examples for IPv6 PACL Support

    Example: Configuring PACL Mode and Applying IPv6 PACL on an Interface

    Device# configure terminal
    Device(config)# ipv6 access-list list1
    Device(config-ipv6-acl)# exit
    Device(config)# interface fastethernet 0/0
    Device(config-if)# ipv6 traffic-filter list1 in
