Port Security Issues...

Dear All,

I am sucessfully configured my LAN switches for port security auto shutdown and max-mac-count 1 in order to protect any body to plug they laptop or any other device to get connected with my network without authorized approval. I knew it is hactak but security is our prime consideration. We are using Ciscoworks2000 for managment and my switches are 6509 & 3500 series.

My concern here is, if any body violated the rule I should get email message by informing that, this purticular port is shutdown, based on that I can take some action. Somebody earlier suggested me that with the help of RTM or DFM we can configure some script to get that, but I didn't find any thing, please suggest or advice me...

Any help will be highly appreciated...


Re: Port Security Issues...

First of all you must have syslog logging enabled on your switches, use the 'logging x.y.z.a'.

Then in CW2000>RME>Administration>Syslog Analysis> Define Automated Action , you can set up what RME should do when it receives a specific syslog message.

Here is a link that shows what can be done:
