Question about planning networks for access-lists

    Given that the rules for access lists are:
    1. Standard access lists near the destination.
    2. Extended access lists near the source.

    Would a good rule of thumb for access list direction of in or out an interface depend on the type of access list? That is:
    1. Standard access lists applied to the interface to the destination host/network be applied in the "out" direction.
    2. Extended access lists applied to the interface from the host/network be applied in the "in" direction.

    I think you are trying to make this more complicated than it needs to be.

    Consider each design on a case by case basis, i tend to be weary of rules of thumb unless its a given, they can distract you and lead you to miss the bigger picture.

    Hope this helps.
