MAC filtering in a Catalyst 2960 ?

Answered Question
Apr 9th, 2010

Hi all !

I have the opportunity to buy either a Catalyst 2960 WS-C2960-24-S or a WS-C2960-24TC-S.

Does any of these two models support simple MAC-fitering, just as can be found in simple home routers (allow/deny lists) ?

I just want to allow one specific MAC address per port, and also a list of denied MAC addresses for ports that are not locked to a specific MAC.

Cheers & TIA !


I have this problem too.

Both switches can allow a single MAC. It uses port security and there are a myriad of options to configure. Logged MACs would show up in the logs/syslog of the switch. Check the link for additional info.

Hope it helps.
