    On a 2600 Router. I have multiple subnets on a single interface and
    want to keep the subnet from talking to the others. But I
    need it to be able to access the internet. This is what I have come up
    with. Can you guys shoot holes in it and tell me if it is correct or
    what I am doing wrong. Thanks!

    interface Ethernet0/0
    ip access-group 101 in
    ip access-group 102 out

    interface Ethernet0/0 (inside)
    access-list 101 permit
    access-list 101 permit
    access-list 101 permit
    access-list 101 permit

    access-list 102 deny
    access-list 102 deny
    access-list 102 deny

  2. First of all, the access-list should have a statement, which PERMITS certain
    traffic. There is an explicit "DENY ALL" at the end of any access-list (even
    though it's not shown). So, your "Out" access-list blocks certain subnets,
    and then it has a remaining world (basically it does not allow anything).

    Second, how do you configure multiple subnets on the interface? Do you have
    primary and secondary IP addresses configured? Do you have broad subnet mask
    (i.e. supernet)? If all your subnets are in one "flat" Layer 2 network, then
    what prevents user to put a broad subnetmask and access other subnets?

    Practically, if you have switch(es), you should define VLANs for different
    subnets, create a trunk to your 2600 router, and create subinterfaces for
    each VLAN. However, based on the fact that you show interface name Ethernet
    versus FastEthernet, you may have an old 2600 router with 10 Mbit interface,
    and this scenario may not work for you.

    Good luck,

    Ok. I unfortunately don't have any switches capable of creating
    vlan's. That most certainly would be the way to go.
    Is there any way to block communications between subnets using just a
    2600 router? Thanks!

    Sure if they're on different interfaces of the router.
