Running 188.8.131.52 RFC1.2 Serial Cable and Service Port are configured. Nessus's updated plug-ins from the Security Team are now identifying the CN Switch.
I can not unplug all the Wrench cables (serviceports) because I'm remote from many of the Filers.
I would like to keep the current service port configurations (IP, Netmask, Gateway), but I just want to down the Service port from the Serial Console, so Nessus will no longer see the Service port as active. I can always log in from the serial connections to "UP" the service port for future upgrades or patches.
What's the best way to just DOWN the service port but keep the IP configuration intack for it....? Is this possible...?
Best as I can tell, you can't disable the connectivity on the serviceport - my view is that you should lock your doors from the outside - turn off the port it uses on the upstream port.
But if you really wish to do it from the CN1610, "no serviceport ip" should do it - you might need to specify the IP configuration you wish to remove - I've never actually done this. "serviceport protocol none" just disables DHCP/BootP - if you're using them, you will also need to do that.
Unfortunately as this is a single purpose device, it doesn't have the full feature set you'd find on a general purpose switch, so I suspect it is not possible to actually disable the IP configuration on the serviceport. Maybe just set it to something fake instead.
