Protected ports with port-security on Cisco 2950

I have protected ports and I would like to use port-security as well. Cisco says a secure port cannot be a protected port.  I entered the commands into my 2950 switch with no conflicts. Will this work?

I copied this from my config:

interface FastEthernet0/1
 switchport mode access
 switchport protected
 switchport port-security
 switchport port-security violation protect
 no ip address
 spanning-tree portfast

Don't know why not. There is nothing in this document that makes them mutually exclusive..

Please take a look at Table 26-1 at this link:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps628/products_configuration_guide_chapter09186a00800d84cb.html#44470

Please note that I have not *tested* this config yet. I just have it configured on a single port and I am curious if it will work.

What version code do you have on the switch?

"If you try to enable incompatible features by using CMS, it issues a warning message that you are configuring a setting that is incompatible with another setting, and the switch does not save the change."

Have you tried this using the CMS (Web gui)?

The version is 12.1(19)EA1c.

I tried accessing the web GUI but I'm not sure what to login with. I can telnet though. The config I pasted above is straight from the startup-config.
