Over in the far corner on the left - second shelf.

Sequencing will be different dependent on products. For example ISA2000 actions all denies then all allows, ISA2004 onwards actions top-down, Without a reference to some form of product this is not really an answerable question.

So it was a Cisco product you needed help with? Would it really have been that much effort to respond with that information when asked for it? No wonder no-one else even bothered responding to you.
