Lost with Cisco access lists...

davorin asked
Last Modified: 2015-07-22

I'm checking the configuration of one Cisco 890 series router and I'm a little bit confused about how access lists are set to interfaces.

The router has configured 7 extended access lists, but in the configuration I see that only one access list is set on vlan1 interface. On no other interfaces is set any other access list.
Also if I execute "show ip interface | include line protocol|access list" the situation is no different.
On the VLAN1 I can see set same one inbound access list. No others have set access list.
FE0 and FE8 have line protocol up, all others are down.

The strange thing is that if I execute "sh access-list" command, I can see that on TWO (one set on VLAN1 and another one) access lists are counted matches and the numbers are changing - so they are active and in use...

I know, that my cisco knowledge is a little rusty, but that much...

I would be very happy if someone could help me with this enigma.

Thank you!
