Do you have any suggestions? I am going to setup "protected ports"(no forwarding of info) and "port security"(port set to mac address). This isn't encryption. Thanks - Dave

I'm working on a project that includes basic router configurations. I configurated everything including: line console 0, line vty 0 15 and secret passwords. There are 3 routers in the network and every LAN is going t...
