Cisco catalyst 4510R MAC address filtering

Is there anyway to have the ability to filter MAC addresses from doing certain things on your network?

Like an ACL for MAC addresses?

Thanks in advance.

Yep. It's a MAC ACL.

The numbered range is 700-799.

What would the syntax be?

ip access-list 700 ip host 123.234.345 any?

Know of any good Cisco docs on this?

I would just do a

"access-list 700 ?"

and build from there.

I don't use MAC ACL's enough to memorize the commands.

yep, it looks like in routers it is just that.

In switches you can do a mac access-list and you have to apply it to a VLAN through the vlan access-map command. Seems to work quite nicely.

Thanks.
