remotely disable a port on switch given an IP address
Hi: I want to remotely disable the switch port an IP address is connected. Does any cisco product provide an API to do this? In other words I want to run a script from a remote machine that will connect to cisco product (using some API) that can instruct a switch (that the product has discovered) to disable a port.
Re: remotely disable a port on switch given an IP address
With CiscoWorks, in "Campus Manager" you can run "User Tracking", enter the IP address, this will tell you which port and which switch the IP address is connected to. Then you'd have to remote into the switch and dis-able the port.
Another option you might try is "port-security" & "sticky port" configurations on the switch, these options will automatically disable the port when the access port sees a mac-address that shouldn't be there.
A third option that you may want to investigate is the Cisco MARS solution. You can set thresholds on the port that will automatically dis-able the port when the threshold is reached, such as a PC that is infected with a virus that is infecting the rest of the network.
