3-46 Securing Networks with Cisco Routers and Switches (SNRS) v2.0
When the last configured interface is deleted, the MPP feature turns itself off.
Follow these steps to configure a network device: Step 1 Enter control plane host configuration mode.
router(config)# control-plane host
Syntax Description host
Applies policies to host control plane traffic.
Step 2 Configure an interface to be a management interface and specify which management protocols are allowed.
router(config-cp-host)# management-interface interface allow protocols
Name of the interface that you are designating as a management interface
Management protocols you want to allow on the designated management interface
Protocols can be one of the following:
■ Block Extensible Exchange Protocol (BEEP)
■ SSH version 1 (SSHv1) and SSH version 2 (SSHv2)
The management-interface allow command is useful when you want to restrict access of management protocols to a device through a particular interface. An additional benefit of dedicated management interfaces is that they prevent management traffic floods on switching and routing interfaces from reaching the CPU.
