Cisco Extended ACL - Correct ACE Syntax

Need to add access control entry (ACE) to extended access-list on Cisco Catalyst 3560 switch (IOS v12.2) that allows a laptop ( to make a TELNET connection to a Host (

I entered the ACE like this and it does not work:
 30 permit tcp host eq 23

The Cisco 'sh access-list 104' output for this ACE becomes this...look at the wierd subnet mask?
30 permit tcp host eq telnet

Anyway could please refresh me on the correct ACE syntax to allow an individual Host to make a TELNET connection to another individual Host?

Since both are hosts, the wildcard mask is unnecessary.

Wow, so simple.  Don't I feel stupid.  Thanks  Very much, your ACE example was perfect.

20 permit tcp host host eq 23 log

Now our Apple Admin on VLAN 4 can telnet into the access layer switch on VLAN 2 to make changes to port settings for his users.  Thanks Again
