access-list 100 permit tcp any host xx.xx.xx.xx33 eq 1723
____
xx.xx.xx.xx80 and xx.xx.xx.xx30 are both DNS servers.  However, 30 is failing unless I kill the entire access-list.  Not very fluent in Cisco.  I know port 53 is typically for DNS but when I do "access-list 100 permit udp any host xx.xx.xx.xx30 eq 53" it seems to look at that as the same as "access-list 100 permit udp any host xx.xx.xx.xx30 eq domain".  So I would think that it should be working as is.  It only functions when the entire list is killed - so I must be missing something.
Thank you.

Can you be more descriptive in how you are making these changes, and where this acl is applied?

Cut/paste all of existing acl 100 into Notepad
Edit to place the new acl entries in the correct order (before any deny)

Example:
\\-- remove from interface
interface serial 0/0
  no access-group 100 in

\\-- delete acl
no access-list 100

\\-- re-create acl from top down
<paste edited acl 100>

\\-- re-apply to the interface
interface serial 0/0
  access-group 100 in

permit udp any host x.x.x.x eq 53  
\\-- is exactly same as, and will show in config as:
permit udp any host x.x.x.x eq domain

WAN interface.
That is complete ACL.
Everything functions perfectly with this ACL except DNS for server ending .X30 <-- which does work only if I remove the entire ACL

Could this be the cause:
access-list 100 permit udp any eq domain host xx.xx.xx.xx80

The reason why I ask this is because originally .x30 was the primary AD/DNS server - it went down for several weeks and was replaced with .x80 for AD/DNS, etc. The only way I could get .x80 to service requests was to change the above line in ACL.  Doing so, however seems to have killed .x30 ability to service dns requests.

what is function of:
access-list 100 permit udp any eq domain host xx.xx.xx.xx80

Did you find a solution?

I added:
access-list 100 permit UDP HOST <internet provider dns server ip address>  eq domain any gt 1023
This works however, I am concerned that I might have just placed a patch on a larger problem as I did not have to enter this into the access list when I only had one DNS server.
Thoughts?
