ACL issue

Hi friends,

 

I am facing a strange issue in ACL. we have many Cisco 4500 series VSS pair in all our branch offices acting as a core. we have below kind of ACL.

Extended IP access list 101
10 permit udp any eq bootpc host 255.255.255.255 eq bootps (14 matches)
20 permit ip 10.253.69.160 0.0.0.31 host 10.252.32.54 (676 matches)
70 permit ip 10.253.69.160 0.0.0.31 host 10.252.72.159 (19503 matches)
100 permit ip 10.253.69.160 0.0.0.31 host 10.252.184.35
110 deny ip 10.253.69.160 0.0.0.31 10.0.0.0 0.255.255.255
120 permit ip any any
 

 

interface Vlan500
description L3_for_non-IT_devices_VLAN
ip address 10.253.69.190 255.255.255.224
ip access-group 101 in

 

The problem is, when we ping any IP which is supposed to be blocked by this ACL, is pinging successfully. and we dont see any hit count also. 

 

ping 10.253.40.250 source vlan 500
Type escape sequence to abort.
Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 10.253.40.250, timeout is 2 seconds:
Packet sent with a source address of 10.253.69.190
!!!!!
Success rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 8/10/12 ms

 

 

All the branch office core switches have similar config and all are successfully pinging. Anyone know why this ACL is not working?

Re: ACL issue

Hi,

First of all, Share your network diagram. Meanwhile, try this (line 5) in the ACL and share the output.

 

Extended IP access list 101

5 deny icmp 10.253.69.160 0.0.0.31 10.0.0.0 0.255.255.255
10 permit udp any eq bootpc host 255.255.255.255 eq bootps (14 matches)
20 permit ip 10.253.69.160 0.0.0.31 host 10.252.32.54 (676 matches)
70 permit ip 10.253.69.160 0.0.0.31 host 10.252.72.159 (19503 matches)
100 permit ip 10.253.69.160 0.0.0.31 host 10.252.184.35
110 deny ip 10.253.69.160 0.0.0.31 10.0.0.0 0.255.255.255
120 permit ip any any

 

Note: Don't generate ICMP traffic from the Switch itself. This ACL will not work. If you want to block traffic which is generated by the Switch itself then apply the ACL on Control Panel.

Re: ACL issue

Hi there,

Is that the correct ACL? Exactly which line of your ACL is supposed to block the return ICMP traffic?

 

cheers,

Re: ACL issue

 

The acl will not apply to traffic sourced from the switch itself. 

 

What happens if you ping from a client in vlan 500 ?

Re: ACL issue

Hi Jon,

 

Are you sure of that? ACL will not be applicable for the traffic sourced from the switch itself?

We couldnt ping from the client as the devices connected in that vlan are some hardware which we dont have any access and no ping option. as its in remote location, we couldnt test. Accidently we just pinged and getting no clue.

Try it from a PC, please.

Re: ACL issue

Hi,

As I already mentioned that don't test this ACL from the switch itself. It will not block the traffic. You have to connect a Desktop/Laptop on the switch and test it again.

 

I am happy that my solution has worked for you.

Re: ACL issue

Thanks all.

 

Let me test by connecting a PC to the switch. Thanks for all your guidelines. Much appreciate it.

Re: ACL issue

Hello,

Are you trying do this ping directly from your L3 device?

Could you try it from a PC?
I checked your ACL and it hasn't wrong configuration.

Re: ACL issue

@kumar.krishna1 ,

 

I had the same configuration here:

Extended IP access list REDEJAPAN
Extended IP access list REDEJAPAN
permit tcp 172.20.22.192 0.0.0.63 any host 172.20.14.199 domain ace-priority 1
deny ip 172.20.22.192 0.0.0.63 172.20.14.0 0.0.0.255 ace-priority 60
deny ip 172.20.22.192 0.0.0.63 172.20.15.0 0.0.0.255 ace-priority 80
deny ip 172.20.22.192 0.0.0.63 172.20.20.0 0.0.0.255 ace-priority 100
deny ip 172.20.22.192 0.0.0.63 172.20.10.0 0.0.1.255 ace-priority 240
permit ip any any ace-priority 300

 

From switch itself, it doesn't working, because The acl will not apply to traffic sourced from the switch itself. 

 

SWC-PBLDTC-01#ping 172.20.14.200 source 172.20.22.193
Pinging 172.20.14.200 with 18 bytes of data:

18 bytes from 172.20.14.200: icmp_seq=1. time=0 ms
18 bytes from 172.20.14.200: icmp_seq=2. time=0 ms
18 bytes from 172.20.14.200: icmp_seq=3. time=10 ms
18 bytes from 172.20.14.200: icmp_seq=4. time=10 ms

 

BUT from the host i cant ping.
