Cisco 2960 port security

Hello Experts,

I have an 8 port Cisco 2960 switch. I need to configure port security.

Port 1 to 6 will have only one device directly attached, so i can configure the MAC address to stick on these ports.

On port 7, there is another switch attached. This is a simple switch that is not managable. This switch will have 6 more devices attached.

Can i still configure port security on port 7? Like configure some kind of MAC address pool of the devices that are allowed to connect. And when an unknown device is attached, the port will go in error disabled state?

Ok guys thanks for the information. I got one other question.

What if the additional switch was a wireless accesspoint attached to port 7? Will every wireless client count? Is it the same as wired, when it comes to port security?

To a switchport, it only understands MAC address. No matter if the mac is learned from connected wired or a wireless device, it still counts.

So yes, its the same regardless of wired or wireless.
