No. The purpose of DHCP Snooping is to prevent someone an unauthorized DHCP server from being connected to the network.

So is there any way to prevent network access for PCs using static IP address to get connect to the network.

Not that I'm aware of.

There's MAC address port security which only allows specific MAC addresses on a port. There's 802.1x which can allow port access based on authentication.

But I don't know of anything that restricts access based on whether the IP address was defined by a DHCP server.

Thank you for your reply.
I am not looking for port security or 802.1x.
I will be using a solution where any PC getting connected to the network will be authenticated based on the MAC address when it generated the DHCP request to the DHCP server. The DHCP server will check the MAC address of the requesting PC in its database. If it matches then it gives the IP Address or else it denys giving the IP Address.
This soltion will work for PCs who reqests DCHP IP address.
But this soltuion will not work for PC using Static IPs.
So I am looking for similar soution for PC using static IPs.
