Port Security on SPF fiber port

Last Modified: 2008-01-09
I am trying to set up a network with port security for the cisco 2960 sw that connects to another 2960 sw via the spf fiber port. (WAN backbone)  I have successfully configured it for the eth interfaces with only one  device, but having problems on the fiber port.  I am using the port security feature that only allows 1 MAC to be recognized and if any other MAC is seen to shut down that port.  If someone could please tell me if it is possible to set this up on the fiber port.  Also I was wondering that if someone disconnects the fiber from the SPF port can they gain access using the Eth port (i.e. gig0/24 has both eth and fiber port)?  Thanks in advanced.
