Is a secure connection between two 2524s possible?

Hey all, I'm trying to setup a connection using two 2524 switches and I have a question regarding security. What I'm trying to do is setup a connection from Office A (which is secure) to IDF room B (which is not secure--there are other tenants) to Office C (which is secure). I don't need hardcore security but I do want to prevent someone from plugging a laptop into a patch panel port in the IDF room and being able to access anything in either office. I thought I had the answer with Port Security, Static Mode, Address Limit one and the MAC address of a device. Tested with a laptop and nope, traffic still gets through regardless of the MAC address of the device plugged into that port. Any other ideas on how to make it a little more secure?

Thanks,

Joe B

Yes? No? Maybe? (<-- not really a bump but close enough)

Hm,

i don't see how it can be done with the 2524 switches..
but of course with the help of other devices.. (for example LinuxPCs with iptables, routing on that PCs and a transportvlan between the two offices.)
