Re: switchport mode access

switchport mode access may answer an expert please.

Talking about port-security from my point of view you need an explicit line

switchport port-security

beside the other commands

switchport port-security something1

switchport port-security something2

Otherwise port security is configured but not enabled.

Re: switchport mode access

Hi Friend,

By default switchports are in dynamic desirable mode and port security can only be configured on static access ports or trunk ports. A secure port cannot be a dynamic access port.

That is the reason it is required for you to configure 1st line and then come down to 2nd line of your config.
