We are getting ready to roll out VoIP using all Cisco equipment. Some office only have 1 data run. We currently use Port-Security to prevent unauthorized devices. Since we will have seperate voice and data vlans, we would have to trunk on that port. Port security is not applicable for trunk ports. We are not ready to roll out 802.1x port authentication. are there any options on the phones to restrict what PCs can be plugged into it's switchports?

Thanks!

depends on the phones and firmware you're running on them. The vast majority will not though. the 802.1x authentication is your best bet. what equipment are you using? switches and phones.

3750 PoE and 7940s, nothing fancy on the phones.

I did find this on cisco's site and it mentions port security over trunk ports. Didn't know I could do that...

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst4500/12.2/25sg/configuration/guide/port_sec.pdf

I realize that doc is for a 4500. It should work for 3750s with latest IOS also?

you should be okay with the 3750 switches. don't worry about the phones controlling it at that point, do it on the switch. Setup the trunk port, voice vlan, etc. then the port security and violation setup.
