Cisco Pix Access list Question

I would like to create an access list that has access to certain services. My question is the following:

Is there a way to create a group of ips (not a range) and then only have to write one access-list command. This way i could simply add ips to the group when i when to grant them access

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes - you can use the object-group command

For example - if you want to allow www access in to several web servers on non-sequential ip addresses :

conf t
object-group network wwwservers
network-object host
network-object host
network-object host
network-object host
network-object host
network-object host

access-list fromoutside permit tcp any object-group wwwservers eq www

You can now add hosts to the object group as needed and they will be applied.

hope this helps
