Sticky Notes has been a part of the Windows operating system for years. It’s a useful utility, lets you pin quick thoughts and notes on the desktop. In 2018, Microsoft delivered the much-needed makeover to Sticky Notes with sync capabilities, file attachment, and a complete redesign. At the same time, the company made sure the users get to access Sticky Notes on rival OS, including Android, iOS, and Mac.

The added syncing function is useless if you can’t access or create Sticky Notes on Android, iOS, or web. To counter the problem, Microsoft has making Sticky Notes available on iOS and Android via other apps and on Mac using the Outlook platform. The company is also leveraging the Microsoft Launcher app on Android for deep integration of Stick Notes.

In this post, we are going to talk about how to access Sticky Notes on Mac, iOS, and Android. It’s not as straight forward as downloading the app from the App Store or the Play Store. Let’s get started.

Use Sticky Notes on Mac

From Outlook App

Apple does provide a capable alternative called Stickies on the macOS. But it’s basic, doesn’t have syncing and it’s only available on the Mac. There is no way to access them on other platforms. Enter Sticky Notes.

There are two ways to use Sticky Notes on the Mac. Microsoft is using the Outlook app for Sticky Notes integration. Follow the steps below.

Step 1: Open the Mac App Store and download the Outlook Email app.

Step 2: Open Outlook Mail and sign in using the Microsoft account credentials.

Step 3: After the successful login, move to the bottom menu bar.

Step 4: Here, you will see the mail, contacts, calendar, tasks, and notes.

Step 5: Tap on the notes icon and it will open the sticky notes menu in the app.

Click on the notes to view or edit them. To create a new note, go to File > New Note or use the ‘Command + N’ keyboard shortcut to compose a note. Add a title and content to it and hit Command + S shortcut to save the note. You can view and arrange the notes via dates.

Top 4 Ways to Fix Mac Desktop Icons Missing or Not Showing

Static port security is a common configuration for printers, copiers and other devices on the network that never change. This lab will discuss and demonstrate the configuration and verification of “Sticky” switchport security.

Real World Application & Core Knowledge

If you completed the previous lab; Configuring Dynamic Switchport Security than you’ll be pretty much up to speed in this lab.

Dynamic port security is great but what about when you connect switches to routers or other devices that need to be secured in a way to prevent unauthorized device swapping in the network. For example you have a small site location with a 1841 router and a 3560-8pc switch and an end user gets the bright idea to swap the 1841 with a WRT54G because he wants wireless and wired network connectivity.

In this case you can sticky the port that the wan router is connected to preventing unauthorized device swaps like such.

There are two ways to configure a sticky port. The first way being that you configure a static MAC address when configuring port-security on a specific interface. The next way which is more convenient is to configure a “Sticky” MAC address and leave the max MAC addresses to its default value of one. When port-security is configured this way, the first MAC address learned on the switch port will be automatically statically configured into the running-configuration as if you manually specified the MAC address.

In this lab you will familiarize yourself with the following new commands;

CommandDescription
switchport port-security mac-address h.h.hThis command is executed in interface configuration mode and statically sets a MAC address that allows traffic with the source MAC to traverse the switch.
switchport port-security mac-address stickyThis command is executed in interface configuration mode and configures the port to dynamically learn the MAC address and automatically configure the MAC address as a static MAC address associated with the port.
clear port-security all interface interfacename#/#This command is executed in privileged mode to erase the current secure mac-address table for a specified switch port.

Lab Prerequisites

  • If you are using GNS3 than load the Free CCNA Workbook GNS3 topology than start devices; R1 and SW1.
  • Establish a console session with devices R1 than configure the devices respected hostname(s).
  • Assign the IP Address 10.1.1.1/24 to R1 Fa0/0 and the IP Address 10.1.1.10/24 to SW1’s Vlan1 interface than verify that you have IP connectivity between R1 and SW1.

Lab Objectives

  • Enable port-security on SW1’s Fa0/1 interface and configure the interface to sticky the MAC address learned. Upon a port security violation, restrict the port. Verify your configuration.
  • Change the MAC address on R1’s Fa0/0 to aaaa.aaaa.abcd then configure the same MAC address as a static MAC in port-security on SW1’s Fa0/1 interface. Verify your configuration.
Due to the limited feature support of the NM-16ESW, this lab CANNOT be completed using the Free CCNA Workbook GNS3 topology. However, this lab can be completed using the Stub Lab.

Lab Instruction

Step 1. – Enable port-security on SW1’s Fa0/1 interface and configure the interface to sticky the MAC address learned. Upon a port security violation, protect the port. Verify your configuration.

Switchport Port Security Mac Address Sticky

To enable port-security you’ll execute the switchport port-security command as previously learned in Lab 4-19. To configure the interface to sticky the MAC address dynamically learn use the switchport port-security mac sticky command in interface configuration mode as discussed at the beginning of this lab.

To verify your configuration you can use the following commands shown below;

Step 2. – Change the MAC address on R1’s Fa0/0 to aaaa.aaaa.abcd then configure the same MAC address as a static MAC in port-security on SW1’s Fa0/1 interface. Verify your configuration.

Keep in mind as soon as you change the MAC address on R1’s Fa0/0 interface, R1 will no longer be able to communicate to any resources on the network as the MAC address is not in the secure mac-address table on SW1 Fa0/1, thus any received frames will be dropped.

Cisco Sticky Mac Port Security

To resolve communication issue between R1 and SW1 due to the port-security violation after the MAC address on R1 has changed you’ll need to shutdown Fa0/1 and clear the secure mac-address table on that interface using the clear port-security all interface Fa0/1 command in privileged mode or configuration mode with the do command prefix. Afterward configure the new static MAC address using the switchport port-security mac aaaa.aaaa.aaab command.

To verify that connectivity has been restored between R1 and SW1, ping SW1’s Vlan1 interface from R1;
