As far as I know, this is not possible with any RCs I've worked with.
For our work, we ensure we disable ACS on paths between peers that want
to communicate. This is why we introduced the 'disable_acs_redir' kernel
parameter[1] to selectively disable ACS for bridges along P2P paths.

If there is, it would be the documentation for your specific RC. Odds
are, the RC simply does not support this.
