You can configure:
  • Up to 100 authorized manager addresses, where each address applies to either a single management station or a group of stations

  • Manager or Operator access privileges


Configuring Authorized IP Managers does not protect access to the switch through a modem or direct connection to the Console (RS-232) port. Also, if an unauthorized station “spoofs” an authorized IP address, it can gain management access to the switch even though a duplicate IP address condition exists. For these reasons, you should enhance your network’s security by keeping physical access to the switch restricted to authorized personnel, using the user name/password and other security features available in the switch, and preventing unauthorized access to data on your management stations.
