    Hi all

    I just wounder if this is possible, I have done some brief research
    and haven't found a clear solution on this.
    I have several Cat 3548XL running IOS 12.0(5), all these are used as
    access switches and are syslogging to a central server. We are not
    running any NACsystems.
    What I would like to see is the switches send the MAC address of the
    computer connecting to a port, for example when a stationary computer
    is powered on. Is this possible?

    Regards

    You will not ba able to do this on the switch.

    You will be able to achieve this result by gathering information from
    the switch using say SNMP and processing it on a seperate computer.

    Perhaps you can try TCL script to do that
