Cisco 881 Mac Filtering

Unanswered Question

I have Atomatic Teller Machine. I want to restrict the network access to only this machine through 881 router with with IP Advanced Feature Set.  Can I use Mac Filtering to achive this? Recently, I tried with Cisco 871 and it worked only with a lot of workarounds. I do not want to do the same work arounds for the other ATMs. Please help me.............

Note: I do not have the router to test it myself............ I need to order it based on the above confirmation.

Hello Wahida,

according to 880 series data sheet MAC address filtering on the 4 ports embedded lan switch is supported


Switch  features

• Auto Media Device In/Media Device Cross Over  (MDI-MDX)
• Eight 802.1Q VLANs
MAC filtering
• Two-port 802.3af and Cisco compliant PoE
• Switched Port Analyzer (SPAN)
• Storm Control
• Smartports

table 5: Cisco IOS Software Features on Cisco 880 Series:  Advanced Security Feature Set (Default)

it is also written:

The Advanced IP Services software image has all  the features of the Advanced Security software image with the addition  of the features listed in Tables 7 and 8.

so this time you should be able to implement MAC address filtering on the switch ports.

Hope to help
