I'm somewhat new to this area of networking. I was wondering if there is any tool out there that will keep me informed of the performance of the switches in my LAN? Whether it is power failure, bad ports, bad supervisor module or intermitting link lost. Is there a tool that i can remote into and get this kind of information? Also, i'm look for information on how to lock down ports using the mac address. I hope i am wording this right. What i'm trying to do is stop a unknown user from being able to plug a device into an active jack and get access to my network. Thank for all you help. CW
From that reference, it states: "You can use the port security feature to restrict input to an interface by limiting and identifying MAC addresses of the stations allowed to access the port. When you assign secure MAC addresses to a secure port, the port does not forward packets with source addresses outside the group of defined addresses"

I am going to design and build an LAN network under a tunnel underground with long distance between the switches.
I will have 2 Catalyst switches and 8 Industrial IE3000, and they will be connected with fiber.
