Usage Guidelines

Aliases can simplify configuration of session ACLsAccess Control List. ACL is a common way of restricting certain types of traffic on a physical port., as you can use an alias when specifying the network service. Once you configure an alias, you can use it in multiple session ACLsAccess Control List. ACL is a common way of restricting certain types of traffic on a physical port..

Example

The following command configures an alias for a network service:

(host)[mynode](config) #netservice HTTP tcp 80
