SMI-S Communication Question?

Hi -

I'm using the Brocade SMI-S Agent for switch management.  I'm curious whether it's possible to lock down the RPC ports on the switch to prevent the SMI-S agent from communication with it as a proxy switch?  If so, Is this common practice in secure environments?   Can someone explain the procedure for locking down and re-enabling these ports within the fabric OS, or point me to a document that explains the procedure?  Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

I never heard of such practice.

You could perhaps use the ipfilter rules on the switch to deny out-of-band interswitch traffic, but I'm not sure if thats going to break other things.
