port-security mac-address

Hi all,

I use port-security mac-address with violation shutdown.

This is very usefull for all computers in a classroom. But I have Laptop authorized and this one is could plugin into another port of the same switch.

So I could define this mac on another port because this address is in the mac table.

How it's possible to define a mac address on the same switch who can be pluggin into several ports.

Best regards.

I don't understand the

I don't understand the problem.  Are you perhaps using sticky mac addresses?

Otherwise as long as only 1 machine is plugged into a port at a time there should not be an issue.

Hi Philip,

Hi Philip,

Thank for your reply.

Yes I use sticky mac address because it more easy to keep all mac address of computer for my classroom.

Do you mean with a sticky action it has some disadvantages like this one ?

Best regards.

Hi,

Hi,

Unfourtanetly, you cannot define one mac-address on multiple switchports.

Switches create mac address table to use source mac address and forward traffic to use destination mac address.

it is unproperly method and probably cause mac flap or another security-violation.

Hi aydinnmu1,

Hi aydinnmu1,

Thank for your reply.

I know it's not possible to define the same mac address on multiple switchports.

The mac address table created is for all the switch.

But how it's possible to permitt one PC to be pluggin into another switchports.??

Best regards.

I think it is only way clear

I think it is only way clear mac address previous port and connect again antoher port.

or you can use port security without sticky parameter.

Sorry, i think there is no dynamic solution.

Sincerely.
