    Port security in VIRL


      I have a lab in VIRL to test out port security, but I do not appear to be getting a violation.  This is causing me to question my understanding of port security.  As you can see via my config below, I have a server connected to port 0/3 with a MAC of "fa16.3e58.d3b4".  I then created a false entry in the port-security config for MAC "fa16.3e58.d3b5". My understanding is that this should only allow the single MAC address of "fa16.3e58.d3b5, and anything else would be a violation.  Therefore, I expect this to be a violation.  Is that not the case?  I also noticed that this specific feature isn't documented as supported on the IOSvL2.
