Because in my Network users are moved or relocated very often, most of the times without any advise, I most solve the problem I have with LAN ports in enable state not connected for a day or two, leaving a security hole.
I read something related to 802.1X to implement authentication via a radius server before giving connectivity to users, but first of all, my users are W2000 and I have a mixed platform of 6500 and 6000s catalyst switches running CATOS or IOS. IOS are catalyst 6500 with IOS version IOS (tm) c6sup2_rp Software (c6sup2_rp-PSV-M), Version 12.1(8a)E3, EARLY DEPLOYM
ENT RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1). CATOS are 6500 or 6000s running CATOS version WS-C6009 Software, Version NmpSW: 6.1(3a)

IOS (tm) C6MSM Software (C6MSM-IN-M), Version 12.0(4a)WX5(11), RELEASE SOFTWARE.
Is it possible to implement a control with hardware and software according to the platform I have, or do you know any other solution to implement besides security port feature?, I mean, an easier feature to implement than port security.
Thanks for any advise.
