Port security with 4108GL

Q1. How many MAC addresses can be assigned to a given port?

Q2. Is it possible to configure a pool of authorized MAC addresses and apply it across all access ports on a switch?

Thank you

Re: Port security with 4108GL

A1. I believe that the address limit is 8.

A2. If you use the CLI and your telnet/ssh client support cut and paste, you can achieve what you desire. However, given the 8 address limit, it might not be meaningful to do that.
If a problem can be fixed, there's nothing to worry. If a problem can't be fixed, worrying ain't gonna help. Bottom line: don't worry.

With other vendors it is sometimes possible to do Radius authentication of each MAC address. I'm not sure about HP switches, but you can check in this direction.
