I have setup access-lists in my 2610 and 3400 but can't find a way to do it in my 2810s. Is it possible?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

The Access Security Guide for the 2810 switches should tell you what you want. I'm assuming that by "ACL" you're referring to the switch making decisions on passing traffic based on layer 2 (MAC or ethertype) or layer 3 (protocol, ports, etc) characteristics of the packets. I think you're going to be disappointed.

The gist, as I'm reading it, is that these are fairly unsophisticated layer 2 switches. They don't appear to have any type of filtering functionality beyond using the source switch-port number in a simplistic drop / pass filter mechanism.

OK. This is kind of what I was thinking would be the answer. I will have to go another route. Thank you! – pdgill May 6 '11 at 16:44
+1 Correct, the 2810 is meant to be an edge access switch, it does not include much filtering or anything above layer 2. – Chris S Jun 23 '11 at 3:39
