The ACL is the smallest of the four main ligaments of the knee and is the primary stabilizer. ACL stands for the Anterior Cruciate Ligament. The others are the posterior cruciate ligament and the lateral and medial collateral ligaments.

You could live without it, but if you want to participate in sports, or want to have a full life without the constant worry that you might hurt your knee even more, you might want to consider getting it fixed if yours is damaged. They have some amazing arthroscopic surgeries today that make recovery and prognosis much better than it used to be years ago.

The ACL prevents the tibia/fibula from gliding forward, and the femur backwards.

ACL is not a mahanism it is just permission and ACL do not know that what comes before means if any ACk of TCP comes on the ACL then it's just react as the policy,where as firewall checks all the result of ACK and knows the conversation of TCP from beginning. IN ACL if you are making a policy of any port basis then ACL always have open gate for the same either it is working or not but firewall open the gate at that time when the we require the policy.
