Binding a WWPN to a port

I'm using HP branded Brocade switches (32 and 64 ports) on which I want to bind a WWPN to a physical port. I'm using HP-UX which is using the switchport ID to generate the device hardware paths and so is dependant on the port of the switch to which my machine is connected.

To be ahead of trouble I would to allow a (HP-UX) WWPN to only login to a specific port. I've been reading the doc's and google-ing, but I can't seem to find if it's possible and if so, how to configure it.

Does anybody have any suggestions?

TIA,

Martien
