Prefix List Policy

Prefix lists provides the most powerful prefix based filtering mechanism. In addition to access-list functionality, ip prefix-list has prefix length range specification.

If no ip prefix list is specified, it acts as permit. If ip prefix list is defined, and no match is found, default deny is applied.

Prefix filtering can be done using prefix-list and prefix-list6.
