ip forward-broadcast and ACL


 I have  A5500 EI Switch (JG240A) with latest available Comware (5.20.99, Release 2221P02) and I want to configure Wake On Lan between VLANs. I have followed the documentation and configuration of switch is (computer which is sending magic packet is in VLAN 1, computer which is intended to be woken is in VLAN 2):


ip forward-broadcast

interface Vlan-interface1
 ip address

interface Vlan-interface2
 ip address
 ip forward-broadcast acl 3001

Advanced ACL  3001, named -none-, 1 rule,
ACL's step is 5
 rule 0 deny ip


 WOL works like a charm but it seems that ACL configured on ip forward-broadcast doesn´t take any effect. Does anybody knoh how get it to work?

That's what I was wondering, but he says it "works a charm", so I decided I was just confused.
