  • Vmware problem

    I am currently running a vmware server with 2 vm's.

    1) Smoothwall
    2) Windows Server 2003 (DHCP/DNS)

    Currently my ISP provides me 3 ip address based on mac address. The problem I am having is that the cable modem is seeing the physically connected adapter, and the adapter on the vm plus an ip address on my voip gateway. So what I would like to know is if its possible to clone a mac address from the physical to the virtual machine or if ther is a way to get around this problem..

    The firewall is currently bound to a physical adapter. Not sure if this is something I need to change but any help is appreciated.

    You can configure your VMs to have a static MAC address (the default is that VMware will dynamically generate a MAC address) that is within the range of VMware assigned product MAC addresses. Do this by editing the .VMX file of your VM. I can provide further instructions if needed.
