What choices do we have? What devices are in your network that can enforce ACLs?

If you only have MS devices then the rules have to be symmetric.  If VLAN1 is allowed to talk to VLAN5, then VLAN5 has to be allowed to talk to VLAN1.  This is because ACLs in MS switches are stateless.


You would need a firewall to create statefull based ACLs.

Branching this off slightly - if you have MS switches doing the VLAN's and an MX in place as well. I am guessing you'd need to route the VLAN's back to the MX to achieve such results?
