Hi, I want to set up a static ARP entry in cisco IOS so that it will assign the MAC address in the ARP entry to a specific interface on the swich no matter what. Is this possible and if so how would I do it? Thanks in advance.

Hi, it can't be done specifying a physical interface but you can associate the ARP to a VLAN, do it this way and then what the switch does is to look for the MAC table for that VLAN and send the frame to the port where the MAC is associated (if any), if not it will flood the frame out of that vlan. This works!
