    This discussion channel is primarily for SRA products, meaning NOS, NetIron, and SLX.

    For these products, your understanding is correct. For example, the source-ip

    and wildcard value

    mean that all hosts in the Class C subnet 10.157.22.x match the policy. In your example you used:

    This would match all hosts with 10.x.64.x.

    For additional Details on ACL configuration, I would suggest you review the "Security Guides" found on our documentation site:

    NetIron Security Guide

    NetworkOK Security Guide

    SLX Security Guide

    If your question pertains to the Legacy Extreme OS, I would recommend you move your post to that discussion channel.

    Hello Mike,
    Thanks for your fast reply.
    Is i read in the EXOS guides it is not possible so i was looking for an alternative.
    Now i only need to select the best switch/router.
    I do not need a high end router.
    24x 1Gbit ports are enough.
    Any suggestion?

    For basic functionality, the CER/CES devices should cover normal network needs, however they are legacy devices and are approaching End of Life. This would be cost efficient, but supportability would be lacking.

    For a long term solution, you could look into the SLX platform, we have an array of different variants of these boxes that may address your needs.

    I would highly recommend you call into sales to discuss as I am only familiar with the SRA products we provide, there are many other solutions we may be able to offer.

    I've moved this topic to the EXOS category and deleted the duplicate post there.
