    ACL is a bit ambiguous. Access control list can mean many things. What is the problem you hope to fix by using an ACL?

    also, google is the first resource you should use to fix any problem.
    New to the internet, technical forums, or the hacker / open source community??

    I agree with meton_magis post. But if you are trying to do something equivalent to an ACL on a router in a linux enviroment. Then what you need to be researching is iptables. This allows you to redirect traffic, block/allow based on ip, block/allow based on port, and almost anything you can think of. In short ACLs on routers are a bad version of IPtables on linux.
