basic or advanced ACL, its ACL number and name must be unique among all IPv6 ACLs. You can assign
an IPv4 ACL and an IPv6 ACL the same number and name.

Match order

The rules in an ACL are sorted in a specific order. When a packet matches a rule, the device stops the
match process and performs the action defined in the rule. If an ACL contains overlapping or conflicting
rules, the matching result and action to take depend on the rule order.
The following ACL match orders are available:
config—Sorts ACL rules in ascending order of rule ID. A rule with a lower ID is matched before a
rule with a higher ID. If you use this approach, carefully check the rules and their order.
auto—Sorts ACL rules in depth-first order. Depth-first ordering guarantees that any subset of a rule
is always matched before the rule.

A wildcard mask, also called an inverse mask, is a 32-bit binary and represented in dotted decimal
notation. In contrast to a network mask, the 0 bits in a wildcard mask represent "do care" bits, and the
1 bits represent "don't care" bits. If the "do care" bits in an IP address are identical to the "do care" bits
in an IP address criterion, the IP address matches the criterion. All "don't care" bits are ignored. The 0s
and 1s in a wildcard mask can be noncontiguous. For example, 0.255.0.255 is a valid wildcard mask
