I have few cisco switches (1 3524 and the others are 2950's) in my network.
I have a list of all the MAC addresses of all my servers and desktops in my office (there are about 400 MAC addresses).
I want to setup an ACL so that only those MAC addresses will be allowed on the switch. This way no one will be able to connect their personal laptops on the network, the switch will not accept any data from these bad laptops.
Now I dont mind doing a port by port thing, ie., I dont mind saying that x MAC address is allowed access only on y port on z switch. Or I dont mind a single list which contains all the MACs and all these switches refer to this list.
I have basic knowledge of router and switch setup, so please be kind!
Any help provided is very much appreciated.
your 3524 and 2950 are IOS based switches.
CatOS switches are/were C6500, C5500, C4000, C4500. C6500 and C4500 now use IOS C5500 are end of sale but still used so should be for C4000.
a catos device has commands like
set vlan 5 4/1
ports have no name, you don't use config t to configure just to say few things
Hope to help
