Hi! We want to create a MAC Filtering rule for specied fort of a switch (GS1920-24P).  The target is to permit only one MAC address to be connected en each port.

P1 -> Allow only MAC AXXXXXX
P2 -> Allow only MAC BBXXXXX
P3 -> Allow only MAC CCXXXXX

Well, y tried with ACL-> "Customization Rules" , but not sure how to create the rule as we can,t select the affected port (it,s greyed).

What are we doing wrong?

Thank you!

    Hi @Infotecnika

    Keep in mind that MAC Address can be easily spoofed.
    Several ports could need to use the same MAC Address (for example multicast, VRRP, ...) 
    I suggest that your security is not based solely in the MAC Address filters.

  • Much thanks for your infor Alfonso,  but we,re making it for IP TVs  and does not have any additional authetication protocols (...just macaddress or vendor_id etc)

    Best regards.
