I have a question on the accept list. If I have a range of numbers all in sequence, can I make one entry using brackets for the entire range, and what would that bracket look like is numbers where 5866439-6499
You are limited to 99 entries in the IN#ACCEPT list.
You can use brackets for each position in the number, so for 6439-6499 you'll need more than one entry because you don't want to allow 6430-6438. So you'd need something like this:
X is any digit 0-9, so you are specifying the next to the last digit in the number can be 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9, and the last digit can be 0-9.
The 6439 has to be by itself.
Hope this helps,
If a contiguous range of digits, you could also format the accept command:
I think both ways are shown in the inline help.
In the ATLAS, any punctuation is ignored, so "accept 64[4-9]X" would be 6440-6449 and 6490-6499. Only the two digits inside the brackets would be matched. In AOS (routers, switches and IPBGs) you can specify a range inside the brackets, but not in the ATLAS.
