I have a couple of Stratix 5700 switches that I am setting up for a pretty simple project. My question is it possible to set individual ports up such that they will only allow a specified static IP address through? All devices connected to these switches will have static IP addresses assigned and in order to prevent other IP addresses from accessing the network I was going to lock the unused ports down and would like to only allow the assigned IP addresses through the remaining enabled ports.
Hi there. Sounds like what you’re looking for is set up a MAC-ACL or MAC Access Control List. This allows you to specify which devices are allowed to connect to a specific port based on the MAC address.
While I’m not in front of my Stratix this would be the right way to approach what you’re looking to do.
