    Hi,

    S-Series hardware - is the flow setup within the system ASIC done before handling ACLs?

    From what I've ssen, the ACLs are called last, meaning you can't use an ACL to prevent a flow from being set-up 😞

    Flow setup is done by the forwarding engine sending unknown traffic to the cpu. if there is an ACL that denies the connection the flow should not be allowed.
