  • port-security error unrecongnized command

    Hello ALL,
    I am trying to enable port security on cisco catalyst 2900 xl:, I have typed command in following order to put fast 0/14 into vlan 5:

    1. config t
    2. Switch(config)#int fa 0/14
    3. switchport access vlan 5
    4. switchport mode access
    5. switchport port-security ?
    % Unrecognized command
    6. When I just do switchport ? I only see following options:
    access Set access mode characteristics of the interface
    mode Set trunking mode of the interface
    multi Set characteristics when in multi-VLAN mode
    trunk Set trunking characteristics of the interface

    Below is the output from sh ver on the switch:

    Thank you in advance for reading my post & replying.
