simple port-security

Hi, everybody! I`m gonna use port security on my switches. What happens with interfaces that are not currently used, but I will add to them port security and someone new connected to him? How best to configure port security on trunk port?

Re: simple port-security

First, you should ask yourself what youmwant to achieve. Then it's possible to give advice on what and to how to configure.

Back to your questions:
If someon connects to a newly configured port, port-security will learn the connected MAC-address or addresses and protect your network from additional MACs. For trunk-ports it is also possible to enable port-security, but not very often useful in an enterprise-environment. Most times it is better to configure security on the switch (if it is one) that is connected to the trunk-port.
