mac lock down command hp procurve 2610

Wants to setup mac lockdown on a procurve.

I have tried

config t
static-mac 123456123456 vlan 1 interface 5
write mem
reload

But I can still plug any device into interface 5 and it wont shut down.

The switch has the latest os and can't figure out what I am doing wrong.

This is what we use, successfully:

port-security 5 learn-mode static action send-alarm mac-address 123456123456

I think your command is just adding a
static mac entry, but not limiting
learning on the port.

mac lock down term is prevent some mac address connection on switch
if you want prevent some mac address(pc) connect on switch
you must write this command

Re: mac lock down command hp procurve 2610

You are talking of mac lockout, not mac lock down.

If you read the HP paper configuring and monitoring port security on page 14-22

It states the command is

[no] static-mac vlan interface

Mac lock down is that a device that has its mac address tied down to set port, and if that device is moved an alert is sent.

from the "2610 access securty guide" page 12-17
MAC Lockdown
When configured, the MAC Address can only be used on the assigned port and the client device will only be allowed on the assigned VLAN
Syntax: [no] static-mac < mac-addr > vlan < vid > interface < port-number >

hence it WILL allow other devices on this port!
only the configured mac can NOT be used on another port

"hence it WILL allow other devices on this port!

Thanks Pete,

To clarify (as I may have not worded it well)but if I plug the authorised device from port 5 to port 6, doesn't that mean port 6 should shut down?

And if I plug a device that is not authorised on port 5, will that port shutdown.

Or will information just be recorded in the log about the movement?

Thanks to everyone so far, greatly appreciated.
