I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

ip access-list 100 permit tcp any any eq 80 established     ' allows any response to web page requests from inside that reply on port 80 but restricts all other port 80 traffic

"access-list 102 permit tcp any established

Since you only want your users to be able to browse the Internet, you must block all incoming traffic accept for the established connections in which the websites are replying to a computer on your network. Doing this is impossible unless you use the 'established' command.

Now that we are familiar with the 'established' command, ACL 102 simply states to permit established traffic from anywhere to all computers within our network.

You may ask why access-list 102 does not read:

access-list 102 permit tcp any any established

In this situation this works just as good, but because it is not as specific, it is considered a hole or an area of vulnerability (especially if you ever got another block of IP addresses)."
