Port Security with 871 Router

I am configuring an 871 router and have 802.1x enabled. The clients can authenticate properly thru the VPN tunnel. We also will have a printer and IP Phone behind the remote 871 router. They cannot run 802.1x so I have a virtual template with "device authorize mac-address" configured for these devices. The problem is this is not like port security or mac auth bypass. I cannot configure the mac addresses under the interface. How can I lock down these ports so they cannot be used by another device? I have searched and cannot find how to configure this. The phones will work but what prevents someone from unplugging the phone and plugging in a non-authorized PC?

This level of access-control is not offered by the 871 platform.

Thanks for the response. So if we want to have that type of access control, it will require the use of an 1800 or something similar?
