Cedar porch posts

I am replacing some old wrought iron porch posts with some new 6x6 select cedar beams. The surface of the porch is cement. Do i need to protect the end grain cedar from moisture at the porch, and what is the preferred method for fastening the post to the concrete. ( I've seen fittings for 4x4's but not for a 6x6) . Bob

You need to use one of these to prevent the end of the post from rotting out.
And yes there made to fit 6 X 6's.
