Re: Cisco command 80 80

Hi O'Neil
The access list is configured to allow traffic from all the hosts in the kiosk network to access host via remote desktop protocol (port 3389).
In access lists, 255 means that the value must match exactly while a zero means the value can be anything from 0 to 254.

Hope this sorts you out. If you only need to allow one host only from the Kiosk network to access the i.p, then the access list should be permit tcp x.x.x.x eq 3389 where x.x.x.x is the i.p permitted.
