asa 5505 port security


I am trying to configure my asa 5505 to only allow company PC's connected to my internal LAN and keep other from unplugging ports from their PC's and connecting say a laptop. I was thinking about trying to put some type of port security on the MAC address, but need help doing so. Does anyone know how to secure the ports to specific MAC addresses? Thanks for all your help!

Re: asa 5505 port security

Hello Chris,

port security is a LAN switch stuff unless your users are so few that they connect directy to the ASA you need to configure the lan switch.

see for example the following for C3750


other features can be available including 802.1X authentication or ARP inspection with ip source guard but are more complex.

Hope to help

Re: asa 5505 port security

Thanks for the response, yes this is actually a small branch office which is part of the reason for the added security. Is there anything we can do to keep users from connnecting their personal devices and using the same static ip's we have set to the pc's? Thanks.
