I have a cisco 1548M
I want to restrict one way access to two Servers. i.e. Serv 1 connected to port 1 Serv 2 connecte dto port 2 I want serv 1 to beable to pass files to serv 2 but I dont want server 2 to pass files from serv 2 to serv 1 In fact Idont want serv 2 to see serv 1. Can this be accomodated in this type of switch??

IP filtering on Cisco Switch

No. Cannot be done. The closest thing to what you would need are VLANs, and even if your switch suported them, you'd need a router and there would be two-way only.

however, there may be a way to do it software-wise, by using access control, domain trusts, hidden shares...etc.

I agree with Q that the switch is the wrong place to accomplish this.

The most common approach would be to set up your access permissions correctly so that server1 can write to server2 but not the other way around.

As far as "I don't want server2 to see server1", I'm not sure what you're trying to accomplish. You can hide server1 from Network Neighborhood with a registry setting but then it wouldn't be visible to any browser, not just server2. However, you could still connect to it.

Are you maybe looking at a situation where a firewall would be the appropriate answer?

regards!
