Dear Experts,

I have two AL3500C06-E6 Avaya Switches in a stack mode, a NAS is connected to one of them and having a static IP address, how can I block specific traffic to this NAS?
the point is to block the clients connected to our wireless AP from accessing this NAS, so I know the two ports used for both the AP and the NAS.
I was told that I cant do that on Avaya switches (only cisco), I am not convinced and I would like to know your opinion.

Depending on the model of switch you may be able to use the Private VLAN Edge feature, which would allow you to just stop anything coming from the AP to get to the NAS (and/or vice-versa).

If you want to do this at the IP level you may be stuck if the AP/clients and the NAS are on the same subnet, but you may be able to use layer-2 access-lists if the PVEdge feature isn't available.

I have mentioned the switch model in the original post (AL3500C06-E6 Avaya) can I do the filtration / access list on the switch level without the need to create a VLAN( blocking all traffic from a specific port to another)?

Avaya's documentation suggests that the 3549 does support layer-2 security, so yes, it should do MAC-level filtering.
