Is it possible to set a whitelist to a port?

I have a port that computers are connected him
I want to limit the computers that can connect to this port
Can I set up a list of computers on one of the ports in the switch that can connect to that port?

Re: Is it possible to set a whitelist to a port?

You can use the MAC Whitelist feature on a port (see https://documentation.meraki.com/MS/Port_and_VLAN_Configuration/Switch_Ports) to restrict which MAC addresses can connect to a port, that would allow you to achieve what you want in a basic way. But don’t use this if you’re trying to build a secure network, MAC addresses are easy to spoof.

 

If you are trying to create a secure network then you need to look at using 802.1x with usernames and passwords (or certificates) - although that takes the complexity up a few notches.
