vlan access maps 2950

Last Modified: 2015-04-04
hi i have a 2950 switch:

- ios: c2950-i6q412-mz.121-22.ea6.bin
- ios: c2950-i6k212q4-mz.121-22.ea14.bin

i am attempting to configure vlan access maps but it appears it is not part of my ios features:

config t
ip access-list extended local-17 - successful
permit ip host - successful
vlan access-map block-17 10 - enter (unrecognised)


it appears i can configure 'vlan access-maps' on my layer 3 switch:

- ios - c3550-i5q312-mz.121-22.ea2.bin

config t
vlan access-map - command recognized

question 1.  i always thought vlan access maps could be used on any layer 2 devices or is it only a feature when using a layer 3 switch due to its routing capabilities otherwise it would not be required on a layer 2, so using normal access-lists would be usual instead on a layer 2 ?
