Ticket 5 – R1 ACL

May 2nd, 2018 in TSHOOT v2 Go to comments

Configuration on R1
interface Serial0/0/1
description Link to ISP
ip address
ip nat outside
ip access-group edge_security in
ip access-list extended edge_security
deny ip any
deny ip any
deny ip any
deny any
permit ip host any


Ans1) R1
Ans2) IPv4 layer 3 security
Ans3) Under the ‘ip access-list extended edge_security’ configuration add the ‘permit ip any’ command.

+ This is the only ticket the extended access-list edge_security exists. In other tickets, the access-list 30 is applied to the inbound direction of S0/0/1 of R1.
+ Although host is permitted to go through the access-list (permit ip host any) but clients cannot ping the web server because R1 cannot establish BGP session with neighbor

    Aren’t there 3 diff concepts…
    1.why should “ping” from client 1 to209.65.200225 on R1 fail-ACL blocking ip not icmp??

    (2.the logic that reply coming fails because it gets filtered “inward” from R1 would work only if ‘icmp’ was mentioned as the protocol?)

    3.Still(after correcting the above 2),are we saying that “ping” is not giving the true fault reason—bcoz BGP comes into picture for “data” packets only? (there are 2 diff reasons for the 2 packet types)

  4. Aditya
    December 30th, 2015

    Got the ans to my 2 queries—its a “permit”–so ip packets get permitted
    ping,being icmp is denied

    But still 3rd one remians a question..

  5. Aditya
    December 30th, 2015

    what I mean is i.e.even after correcting as above,”ping”(icmp) when used for testing would still fail??so ping is not a reliable test??

    The ping utility (based on the ICMP Protocol, among others) is definitely a very reliable test on most IP networks:


    ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol) is the protocol that IP uses for “control messages”!!!

    The implementation of ICMP supports three protocols:

    ◾ Echo Reply (0) or “ping”: The client replies to the ping, echoing the data in the IP packet!

    ◾ Destination Unreachable: This is an indication that the device cannot forward an IP packet. For example, this error message will be sent if a packet addressed to the device requires a protocol that the device does not support.

    ◾ Time exceeded: This indicates that the device has dropped a packet because its “time to live” (TTL) has reached 0.

    The ICMP Protocol from an application perspective:

    ICMP messages are processed and generated by the IP stack itself! – Therefore, an application should NOT need to interact with the ICMP code at all.
    If the user wishes to generate its own ping to a device, it can form the packet as an IP packet and send via the IP module.

    The BGP Protocol depends on an existing reliable TCP/IP Connection between two BGP Peers – Therefore, within e.g. the actual TSHOOT Ticket 5 – The ISP and R1 devices does NOT become eBGP neighbors due to IP connectivity problems caused by the misconfigured Extended “edge_security” ACL on the R1 Device!

    Therefore the Clients can’t reach the external WEB Server ( via the TSHOOT IP Infrastructure.

    Hope this helps!?

  7. R1 — ACL—Failed with 710!!
    January 8th, 2016

    This was on test !

    Answer: add permit ip any command to R1’s ACL

    Ans1) R1
    Ans2) IPv4 Layer 3 Security
    Ans3) Under the ip access-list extended edge-security configuration add the permit ip any command

    January 19th, 2016

    Shouldn’t be IP

    Because if IP used with its original wildcard the ACL entry will allow only IPs .225 and .226.

    Am I wrong?

    Boop boop – Don’t forget the LAST ACE within the extended “edge-security” ACL:

    permit ip host any !!!

    This ACE handles indeed the traffic from also the external WEB Server into the TSHOOT Infrastructure!

    This way we’re having a very selective inbound ACL filter, that ONLY allows inbound traffic from the relevant .225 / .226 / .241 node addresses, which excactly fulfill our needs within the actual TSHOOT Ticket (#5) Infrastructure

    Hope this helps!?

  10. Aditya
    January 28th, 2016

    shouldnt ans 2 be “bgp issue”??
    (noted in IP NAT also–similar case ACL and NAT–and both in options–u chose NAT??)

  11. DD
    February 18th, 2016

    As the ACL is applied on inbound interface of Serial0/0/1:
    interface Serial0/0/1
    description Link to ISP Router s0/0/0
    ip address
    ip access-group Edge_Security in

    We will also have to permit the host or the host network:
    R1#sh access-lists Edge_Security
    Extended IP access list Edge_Security
    permit ip any (37 match(es))
    permit ip any (6 match(es))
    R1#sh access-lists Edge_Security
    Extended IP access list Edge_Security
    permit ip any (52 match(es))
    permit ip host any (3 match(es))

    The “interface Serial0/0/1” ip address statement “ip address” is wrong. It should read

    March 11th, 2016

    Spot on, PeerReview. Let us hope the actual test would have got it right!

    Furthermore, we tend to overlook the fact that the entire network segment was also denied access in the edge-security acl. This must also be corrected, otherwise the hosts would still be unable to ping the web-server.

    So this ticket had two issues, but the answers given do not reflect that fact!

  14. vl
    March 11th, 2016

    Yop, it looks so! –
    Therefore @Network Tut Admin:
    Could you please change the R1 serial0/0/1 IP address on top to .225 instead of .224 as user PeerReview suggests above!?
    Thank you in advance!

    @PeerReview, @vl: Thanks for your information. We have just fixed it!

    I have checked the diagram again and noted that the acl is applied to traffic coming into R1 from the cloud. So it was probably wrong to suggest that traffic from clients on the internal network would also be denied access!

  17. vl
    March 15th, 2016

    Please beware traffic DIRECTION to/from R1:
    External traffic going into R1 from Cloud: “Deny All” except traffic from: and traffic from:
    Outgoing User- and Transit- traffic going towards Cloud from R1: “Allow” theese Traffic types from: (Summary NAT’ed into incl. overload).
    Hope this helps!?

    This ticket is really messy. My reason: applying the access-list in the inbound direction of R1 is really tricky. It is not only blocking access to traffic coming to R1 from the inside of the network but it also blocks routing protocol update from the ISP. I could not believe that placing the access-list inbound on R1 would block access to client 1 and client 2 then I setup a small topology in GNS3 to test it. The result was amazed….

  20. Netw_Filter
    April 6th, 2016


    Please beware the fact, that the extended Ticket#5: “edge_security” access-list applied in the INBOUND direction of R1 is ONLY blocking access to certain traffic coming INTO R1 from the OUTSIDE of the network (the Cloud) including routing protocol updates etc. from the ISP, since NO eBGP Peering can be established / formed over the Serial link connecting the Cloud ISP PE Device and the TSHOOT.com R1 CE Router.

    The applied edge_security ACL simply prevents this!

    Thus Ticket # 5 is learning us the IMPORTANCE of – ALLWAYS – keeping track of also the “Traffic DIRECTION” when applying specific ACL filters to relevant Interfaces within a certain Network Topology! – Right!?

    Pls also notice that – in addition to this – the applied “NAT” Setup on R1, prohibits (or prevents) any “10” Based IP traffic to appear within the external WAN Cloud at any time!

    Good luck @ exam!!!

    hi friends also that will work:

    permit ip host any

    you don’t need to permit…

  22. John
    April 7th, 2016


    Pls note that ONLY:

    permit ip host any

    (or permitting the whole .224 subnet itself)

    will work on R1!!!

    permit ip host any – ALONE

    will NOT work, as shown below!

    R1(config-ext-nacl)#do sh ip rou bgp – (B4 doing anything within Ticket 5!):
    *** NO eBGP Routes on R1 ! ***

    R1(config-ext-nacl)#permit ip host any
    R1(config-ext-nacl)#do sh ip rou bgp
    *** STILL no eBGP Routes on R1! ***
    BUT this makes a HUGE difference:
    R1(config-ext-nacl)#no permit ip host any
    R1(config-ext-nacl)#permit ip host any

    R1(config-ext-nacl)#%BGP-5-ADJCHANGE: neighbor Up <—- !!!

    NOW we got needed eBGP routes on R1:

    R1(config-ext-nacl)#do sh ip rou bgp
    B* [20/0] via, 00:08:21
    B [20/0] via, 00:08:21
    B [20/0] via, 00:08:21

    i know and that’s what I said…

    you don’t have to -> permit ip any

    just permit ip host any will work fine

    @diki @ John,

    I cannot see the answer “permit ip host any” from the list of answers?

    please advice

  25. John
    April 10th, 2016

    Yes – the discussion above is just about the various possibilities for permitting the ISP Device as an IP Sender for various eBGP traffic etc. coming into the TSHOOT.com infrastrucsture via the WAN Cloud – Here I think – (and in sync w. correct answer above) – Permitting the whole .224 Subnet is probably best, in case of ISP and R1 Devices – for some future / unknown / odd reason – should switch their WAN addresses on that Subnet.
    However diki dik’s suggested ACL solution also works fine on the link IRL, although not in perfect sync with the wanted (and correct) Ticket answer @ exam.

    Can someone double-check my logic?

    R1 does not have a route to (it does have a route to In order to get a route to, we need to get BGP working and BGP isn’t working because of the edge acl which is not allowing the ISP router and R1 to communicate.

    Is this an accurate summation of the problem?

    To explore a little further, if BGP was working but no route encompassing is advertised, then there would still be a ping issue.

    Any feedback is appreciated.

  31. Brian
    July 25th, 2016

    1) Yop – You just nail’ed it!!!
    2) And Yop once again – if BGP was working but NO route encompassing is advertised (from the external ISP eBGP Neighbor), then there would STILL be a ping issue (towards the external WEB Server from the inside) is ALSO just SO TRUE, SO TRUE!!!
    So just wonders – Where the heck do you “get it” from? – How does it come to you this “cool” and “strategic” tech overview? ;)

    September 15th, 2016

    I pass the exam today with score of 1000/1000 it took me 70 minute to finished it.

    I had the latest dumps all off them was garbage. I just study this website go for premium.
    I read all the comments and practice all the tickets on website and PT and gns3.

    To pass the exam with score of 1000 this website it’s enough but to survive out there you have to study hard, by hard i mean hard! Out there the person who knows one line more its the winner so passing this exam its jut the beginning of your study’s.

    Enough said this is how i did it : (i found this strategy on this website bye the ccnp-guy)

    You have to ask your self Is it ipv4 or ipv6?

    If IPv6 you have these 3 questions, 1 each on
    R2: (T12) IPv6: enable ospf 0
    R3: (T15) IPv6: remove “tunnel mode ipv6″
    R4: (T16) missing Redistribution from RIPng to OSPFv3

    If its IPv4 do the following to narrow it down:

    From Client 1 ping if its :

    OK? = 3 tickets on R1:
    (T03) Wrong IP of BGP neighbour
    (T04) NAT – ACL mis-configured
    (T05) WAN ACL statement missing

    If you cant ping try to ping from client 1

    OK? = 1 ticket on R1:
    (T01) OSPF Authentication

    If you cant ping try to ping from client 1

    OK? = 2 tickets on R4:
    (T11) Redistribute ospf to eigrp (“to” & -> )
    (T14) EIGRP Passive Interface

    If you cant ping 10.2..1.1 you have 4 ticket as follow:

    NO? = 1 ticket on DSW1:
    (T06) VLAN filter

    or = 3 tickets on ASW1:

    (T08) Access port not in VLAN 10
    (T09) Port Channel not allowing VLAN 10,200
    (T07) Port Security

    I also had multiple choice questions and Eigrp and ospf simlets

    Good luck to you all.
    This is just the beginning so study hard.

    Al7amd Le Allah, i Passed Tshoot last Friday scoring 987,

    I wanted to comment on this ticket as there was a problem in it that i want to warn every one about it, the problem is that even though the ACL is applied R1 is able to ping the BGP neighbor “” , so take care this is just a bug in the system.

    I have included a comment in my exam, so that they would fix it in the future, but overall i really enjoyed this exam, by not memorizing the tickets instead making a troubleshooting strategy which is as below:

    1. if it is IPv4 ticket, first distinguish whether it is L2 or L3 ticket by the following:
    on Client 1, do ipconfig to know the IP of the gateway.
    Ping the gateway

    If the success this is L3 ticket, if not this L2 Ticket.

    2. L2 ticket investigation, open L2 topology
    insure that Client 1 and 2 ports on ASW1 are configured on the right VLAN,
    Trunks between the switches are carrying the correct VLANs
    Check port security
    Check VACL

    3. L3 tickets, do traceroute from DSW1 to see where the problem resides

    4. IPV6 tickets, do traceroute from DSW1 to see where the problem resides.

    Just passed tshoot exam. Score 870/1000
    It was not so easy. A lot of new questions MCQ and a very hard iBGP & eBGP Sim. On this one there were two AS. Your duty is to console R1 and fix the issue. The iBGP & eBGP are in idle state.
    Also I had a problem in a ticket. I’ve left a comment.
    Apart from that everything worked just fine.

    be careful.
