Creates an IPv6 ACL and enters its configuration mode. An IPv6 ACL defines a set of rules that filter IPv6 packets flowing through a port or interface. Each rule specifies the action taken when a packet matches the rule. If the action is deny, the packet is dropped. If the action is permit, the packet is allowed.

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Access Points — AP505i, AP510i/e, AP560i/h
  • Service Platforms — NX5500, NX7500, NX9500, NX9600, VX9000
