HOW TO SECURE NETWORK WITH MAC ADDRESS

Post by w@moffice » September 5th, 2018, 2:56 pm

Hi everybody,

I'm trying ipfire today and if i want to use it in our office i need to secure my network with mac address.
I've already configure dhcp with mac address and it works fine. but the second thing i would like to do is blocking my green network to unknown client mac address. Actually if i configure manually an ip on my my ntework card it works and this is what i want to secure. I only want to give access to authorized machine...

Thanks in advance for your help!!!

Cheers

Managed switch and port security. Dont believe there is a way to do what your asking on the router.

You can try to disable dynamic IP addresses in DHCP. Just set start address to end address. This should hand out only one IP.

Hi,

you can even leave the fields for start and end address empty and use only fixed leases. This setup is running here.

HTH,

You're right. I didn't find a note about this config in the dhcpd docs and the source for the WUI. Therefore my hint about only one dynamic IP.
