    I'm assuming that you want to restrict admin access, not create a SPAN port..

    Create a new VLAN and assign all other ports to the new vlan, or remove the IP from vlan 1 and assign it to the new vlan, and only put 1 port in the new vlan.

    Thanks Irmoore, by the way, just a quick question, does a port has to be assigned to a particular vlan or it can actually stand on its own?
    Thanks a lot

    At least one port must be active for that vlan to be active
