    Default ACL with BGP community polices

    access-list 101 permit ip host 6.6.6.0 host 255.255.255.0


    OK I know what it does by why is it written like this ??

    this read like " any traffic from the network address to the subnet address"

    Why not just have it as a standard access list that covers the whole subnet ??

    Does any one have any more info on this format of ACL's ?

    Its just a data field that is passed to the process, just the human readable part makes it confusing.

    I much prefer a prefix list to ACL anytime dealing with BGP anyway.

    So lazy coders making it easy for them selves using the existing ACL syntax to pass the arguments to the process.

    It's written like that, because there is a difference between "this subnet" and "any subnet or host that falls within this mask"
