mac address security

Hi,

How do we check the max mac limit configured on the switch for permissible no. of mac address. For example, a switch might have been set for allowing only 25 mac address in numbers, allowed on the configuration.

Is there any command to check this?

Thanks in advance.

Hi ,

I am totally agree with John.

you can find on each interafce that how many mac add. are there on a port and how much maximum you can assign.

there are 3 commands:

sh port-securty

sh port-security int fa0/--

sh port-security address .......
