Switch Port Security Topology

Here we will use four scenario on four switch port. According to these scenarios, the below Port Security configuration will be done:

– max MAC 2
– 1 static MAC (PC1)
– 1 dynamic MAC (PC2)
– 1 violation (PC3)
– violation type shutdown

Switch(config)#inter fastEthernet 0/1
Switch(config-if)#switchport mode access 
Switch(config-if)#switchport port-security
Switch(config-if)#switchport port-security maximum 2
Switch(config-if)#switchport port-security mac-address 00E0.B085.4951
Switch(config-if)#switchport port-security mac-address 0003.e445.1485
Switch(config-if)#switchport port-security violation shutdown

– max MAC 2
– 2 dynamic MAC (PC6,PC7)
– 1 violation (PC8)
– violation type restrict

Switch(config)# interface fastEthernet 0/2
Switch(config-if)# switchport mode access 
Switch(config-if)# switchport port-security 
Switch(config-if)# switchport port-security maximum 2
Switch(config-if)# switchport port-security mac-address sticky 
Switch(config-if)# switchport port-security violation restrict
