The router matches the incoming packet to the statement that was created by the access-list 201 deny icmp any command, continues comparing the packet to the remaining statements in ACL 201 to ensure that no subsequent statements allow FTP, and then the router drops the packet.

The router reaches the end of ACL 101 without matching a condition and drops the packet because there is no statement that was created by the access-list 101 permit ip any any command.

The router matches the incoming packet to the statement that was created by the access-list 101 permit ip any command and allows the packet into the router.
